Default Problem in Ubuntu Synaptic today...

When I run Ubuntu 9.10's Update Manager with the Nvidia Vdpau Team PPA loaded I am getting some strange Partial Upgrade notices...see below...



and then when I goto see what exactly this partial upgrade involves I get a massive list of stuff I do NOT want to install...see below...



Any ideas why this might be happening? I certainly do NOT want to install the 70 new packages that it is asking me to install...

Thanks for any help!

You're much better off compiling by source or installing 3rd party stuff manually than using PPAs, trust me.

No, don't.

Maybe just a glitch or bug in one of the packages (looks like it's trying to pull in gnome crap). Try waiting for a few days and see whether it gets fixed.
Otherwise you have to check which one of the packages has some weird dependencies that are causing this.

The ppa's nvidia blob has been changed to use the external libvdpau. That is why you see the two internal packages being removed. I think when something is forcibly removed like that, update-manager automatically shows you a "distribution upgrade" or "partial upgrade" message.
What's puzzling is the 70 other packages. It looks like you're using a clearlooks theme, which would indicate you're on Gnome already. But if that's the case you should already have brasero, empathy etc. installed.
