Need to get 0B/88,3kB of archives.
After unpacking 169kB of additional disk space will be used.

same problem.
how do you import the gpg signatures?

I added dag weirs rpm repository and the apply failed and I could not figure out why.  I then ran apt-get manually and realized that it was because I did not have the GPG signature imported.

An output window would be nice.  Similar to gftp's or other programs debug consoles.

what system are you using? debian or a apt-rpm using distro? what is the output of apt-get if you try the same operation (like try to install exactly this set of packages that fails under synaptic)?

Take a set of packages, e.g. an upgrade; the packages are downloaded but when the changes are applied nothing happens. No feedback, no error and the packages remain marked for upgrade/install. It would be nice for some information in this situation, even a --verbose[-v] would be a step in the right direction. I've marked this as ordinary as it does not stop functionality but it's a blocker in reality as it makes it hard to use.
