apt-get craziness.....

I had mysql client installed, then I upgraded my version of perl using apt-get install. Now, I want to get mysql-client working again and when I try to install it, I get:

/usr/bin# apt-get install mysql-client
Sorry, but the following packages have unmet dependencies:
mysql-client: Depends: libdbi-perl but it is not going to be installed
Depends: libdbd-mysql-perl (>= 1.2202) but it is not going to be installed
E: Sorry, broken packages

HELLLLPPPPPPPPPPPP

Thanks.
Eric

Have you tried an 'apt-get upgrade'? When it says "is not going to be installed" it means that it is available to install but it would break other dependancies to do it.

I tried that and it upgraded everything, but when I try to install it again, it gives me the same error.

I like apt but it gets real confusing when things go wrong.
