I probably used also aptitude occassinaly in the past.I tried to install linux-image-2.6.32-5-amd64 as stew said, but that failed as well Some packages could not be installed.
libperl-apireference-perl depends back to perlapi-5.10.1 and perl-base claims to be at the newest version looks like I've got perl 5.14.2 installed. As far as I understand, downgrading would solve this issue, right?
So I downgraded to perl 5.10 from the debian archive.
Running Some of the to-be-removed packages look important for what I'm doing, e.g.

Before all this I installed a lot of things over the last ~2 years, that machine had been running.
I remember having some issues with munin recently, where I needed to modify the apt-sources to retrieve version 1.4.7.
I might have gotten some squeeze packages there as well?
What seems to be strange: If I check /etc/debian_version it says: 6.0.5 Also I read it is not a good idea to use aptitude now, or say: not to mix aptidute usage and apt-get usage.
