Great. You screw up your package management system and then complain it
can not keep up with your fooling around.

Either use package management properly or go for sources all the way and
work out the details yourself. But NEVER break dependencies deliberatly
and complain about poor package management by the software.

The error in this case is clearly between the keyboad and the chair.
