- Doesn't that just mean that some dependency information is missing from one of the Debian packages?
I suspect that the issue referred to in the article involves optional components of programs. For example, 'apt-get install gimp' will install a functional copy of gimp, but not a full-featured version. To install gimp completely, you need something like 'apt-get install gimp gimp-data-extras gimp-help-en gimp-manual gimp-python gimp-svg gimp-perl'. Whether you think this is a good thing or not probably depends on whether you're trying to save disk space or not.
