Word up ya'll...

Currently have a separate partition on my HDD running Kubuntu Lucid. I'm interested in trying out the KDE 4.5 RC1 packages so I've added the necessary repo, as described on the kubuntu website. Problem is, LOTS of packages are being held back, which would obviously result in an incomplete upgrade. First I used my normal command to update the system:

sudo apt-get clean && sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade

And when that told me about packages being held back, I used aptitude (as this usually is very good at sorting out dependency problems):

sudo aptitude upgrade

But even aptitude cannot give me a complete upgrade.

How do I resolve this?

Beautiful. Thank you!
