Libranet 2.7 Classic apt-get and sources.list questions

I've been trying to update a Live Journal client. But for some reason or another when I apt-get it wants to basically remove Gnome from my computer.

This is what I get when I try to apt-get logjam

root@NixBox:~# apt-get install logjam

Need to get 73.3MB of archives. After unpacking 26.1MB will be used. Do you want to continue? [Y/n]
How I keep Gnome from getting removed?

Also, I'd like to know how I can add KDE and Gnome mirrors to my sources.list. I tried to do it myself and it said it was malformed. So how do I add KDE and Gnome mirrors to my sources list so they work?

82 packages upgraded, 74 newly installed, 54 to remove and 681 not upgraded. 67 packages not fully installed or removed.

before you go any further, it looks like your system has a horrible mish mash of some packages installed/ready to upgrade vs. those you want to force in as upgraded.

Better to do:

apt-get -f update
apt-get upgrade <-- no -f

and do a safe upgrade with all the packages you already have in the queue/cache ready to upgrade first.

then once your line says:
0 packages upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded

then you should try installing what you want to install.
