KDE base install


I am trying to install KDE from scratch on a Debian base system (2.4.18 xfs enabled iso image) that has X installed. I got as far as installing kdelib3-crypto, then recieve the below message. please note, that I borrowed the message from another forum post, where the user received the same error message. Obviously, the install of packages stops here because of dependencies. The answer suggested to use apt-get to download the package and install it. I tried;

"apt-get install kde-lib3-crypto kdebase-crypto"

with the same result.

Any suggestions what I am doing wrong? The only possible problem is that the crypto packages are non-US.
Much appreciated!
