This morning I have issued a command I use fairly often:
Usually it finds little to do, some times it will replace the kernel and headers.
With my great surprise today it responded this way:
root@xxxxx:~# apt-get dist-upgrade Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done Calculating upgrade... Done The following packages will be REMOVED: apparmor console-setup grub kbd linux-image-3.2.0-23-generic linux-image-3.2.0-31-generic linux-image-3.2.0-49-generic linux-image-3.2.0-51-generic linux-image-server linux-server ntfs-3g plymouth-theme-ubuntu-text ubuntu-minimal The following NEW packages will be installed: libudev1 The following packages have been kept back: udev 0 upgraded, 1 newly installed, 13 to remove and 1 not upgraded. Need to get 48.1 kB of archives. After this operation, 605 MB disk space will be freed.

Since I had a very fresh backup I tried going ahead and guess what, it indeed destroyed my server and it could not boot any more.
What's the deal with this?
Also, why does

2.88dsf-13.10ubuntu11.1? It looks like some repository is doing something nuts. All I have installed of "odd" are repos for PHP FPM 5.4+,
varnish. They were added more than 1 month ago as well and never gave an issue with
