Packages install endlessly?

Instead of trying to explain the problem, I'll just paste exactly what happens. So far it seems harmless, just weird:

Does the following command fix this issue?
Code: Select all
apt-get install hplip-data libgnome-keyring-common

If not, please post the output of:
Code: Select all
apt-cache policy hplip-data
and
Code: Select all
apt-cache policy libgnome-keyring-common
Have a nice day!

Here's what I've got now each time I run a dist-upgrade:

Code: Select all
root@Computer:~# apt-get dist-upgrade

So it still keeps "installing" the same three packages. Strange.

Could it be overlapping sources?

Code: Select all
~# apt-cache policy libavahi-common3
libavahi-common3:
  Installed: 0.6.31-5
  Candidate: 0.6.31-5
  Version table:
     0.6.31-5 0
        500 http://archive.tanglu.org/tanglu/ chromodoris/main amd64 Packages
 *** 0.6.31-5 0
        500 http://ftp1.us.debian.org/debian/ testing/main amd64 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

I am surprised the system even works, if does work, it may seem harmless, but it will not be reliable, , guess it is ok, to experiment and play with though.


Are using Debian ? or are you using this ? http://tanglu.org/
Code: Select all
 http://ftp1.us.debian.org/debian/ testing/main amd64 Packages
http://archive.tanglu.org/tanglu/ chromodoris/main amd64 Packages

Have you read this ? :

Good reading, and some are good for laughs as well. :) I technically didn't "mix" two different distros, but I installed Tanglu 2.0, and manually upgraded it to 3.0. Apparently some of the same packages are in both Debian and Tanglu, which I didn't know.
