Traceback (most recent call last):

The same fix works for me as in bug #442651. Adding a "openoffice.org-common (>= 1:3.1.0-2)" as first item in the pre-depends line (makes me wonder why the original fix was dropped?).

It looks like this probably got dropped when merging or when fixing another pre-dep bug without realizing it helped fix a problem with upgrades, as Debian doesn't have it.

Were you ever able to determine what the bug is in apt that requires this to be included and is there already a bug on apt for this?
