Try aptitude for package management. It is so easy compared to dselect and
doesn't make issues with apt cache. I found in the past that dselect is one
way to cause conflicts on a Debianized system and in the long run caused me
to reinstall.

I hope that helps

OK, I've read all the messages in this thread to date and I'm also
persuaded to give debian another go :)

In the past, I've been burned by debian's installation process (not for
lack of effort). I can't utter the name "dselect" without instantly
developing and worrying nervous twitch in my left eye (and then I have
to sit down for a while).
