No matter what sources I use for slapt-get, --upgrade always fails because it can't find the listed hal-info package. So I went to a few of the mirrors in my browser, and lo-and-behold, the "meta" and "txt" files are present, but the actual package is not. The exact package in question is "hal-info-20071212-noarch-1". I checked three different sources in my browser and the situation was the same at all three. I'm not sure if this has anything to do with it or not, but the meta file lists the package as a "tgz" file instead of a "tlz" file (neither of which is present).
