Why does apt 'keep back' packages for gaim and grip?

Why is apt keeping back packages for gaim and grip? Should I do something concerning this? I know gaim is an IM (correct?) but don't know anything about grip.

TIA

you might already have the latest version(s) available from the url's in your sources list. or installing gaim and grip will cause dependancies that can't be resolved from the files on the sources.list servers. either way, it's not a problem. you can allways do a apt-get update gaim later.

duh, thats not the right command, see below

Thanks for the answer.

I did this and got this message. Is that a problem?

[root@localhost servant]# apt-get update gaim
E: Sources list /etc/apt/sources.list.d/gaim.list doesn't exist

TIA

try apt-get install gaim and see what you get
