OK, I've done that but now something weird is happening.

'apt-get upgrade' claims to be upgrading scribus -- everything looks
quite normal but when I subsequently run 'apt-get -s upgrade' it says it
*still* wants to upgrade scribus.

Rinse. Lather. Repeat.

What do the asterisks mean in this output? How do I fix it?

"For the same reason, the collective force cannot be legitimately
 employed to foster the love of labor, sobriety, thrift,
 generosity, learning, religious faith; but it can be legitimately
 employed to further the rule of justice, to defend every man's
 rights." -- Fr?d?ric Bastiat (1801-1850)
