Odd package upgrade issue


Hey All,

I've had an odd package upgrade issue for a while now (couple of months maybe). I am using Apache 2.x, and do not have Apache 1.x installed.

Code:
root@girls [~]# apt-get upgrade
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
The following packages have been kept back:
   libapache2-mod-php4 (4.3.10-2 => 4.3.10-12)
   php4 (4.3.10-2 => 4.3.10-12)
   php4-common (4.3.10-2 => 4.3.10-12)
   php4-mysql (4.3.10-2 => 4.3.10-12)
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 4 not upgraded.
Code:
root@girls [~]# apt-get dist-upgrade
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
Calculating Upgrade... Done
The following NEW packages will be installed:
   apache-common (1.3.33-4)
   libapache-mod-php4 (4.3.10-12)
   libkrb53 (1.3.6-2)
   libzzip-0-12 (0.12.83-4)
The following packages will be upgraded:
   libapache2-mod-php4 (4.3.10-2 => 4.3.10-12)
   php4 (4.3.10-2 => 4.3.10-12)
   php4-common (4.3.10-2 => 4.3.10-12)
   php4-mysql (4.3.10-2 => 4.3.10-12)
4 upgraded, 4 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
Need to get 4637kB of archives.
After unpacking 7082kB of additional disk space will be used.
Do you want to continue? [Y/n] n
Abort.
For reference, I have included what apache and php packages I have installed:

Any idea why it will not upgrade the PHP existing packages, and why it wants to install apache 1.x if I try to do a dist-upgrade? I'm baffled, and it's been like this for a while now.

I think it is holding back packages because they require installing NEW packages in addition to upgrading existing packages. apache-common is a dependency of php4 for whatever reason (I just looked at dependencies using synaptic). I'm sorry I can't provide more information because I do not use apache.

Well, I managed to resolve this issue, although I'm still not sure what the underlying issue was. I solved this by re-installing php4-common.

Code:
root@girls [/home/kev]# apt-get --reinstall install php4-common
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
The following extra packages will be installed:
   libapache2-mod-php4 (4.3.10-12)
   libkrb53 (1.3.6-2)
   libzzip-0-12 (0.12.83-4)
   php4-mysql (4.3.10-12)
Suggested packages:
   php4-pear (4.3.10-12)
   phpdoc ()
   krb5-doc (1.3.6-2)
   krb5-user (1.3.6-2)
The following NEW packages will be installed:
   libkrb53 (1.3.6-2)
   libzzip-0-12 (0.12.83-4)
The following packages will be upgraded:
   libapache2-mod-php4 (4.3.10-2 => 4.3.10-12)
   php4-common (4.3.10-2 => 4.3.10-12)
   php4-mysql (4.3.10-2 => 4.3.10-12)
3 upgraded, 2 newly installed, 0 to remove and 1 not upgraded.
Then I was able to upgrade php4:

Code:
root@girls [/home/kev]# apt-get upgrade
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
The following packages will be upgraded:
   php4 (4.3.10-2 => 4.3.10-12)
1 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
