[Pkg-samba-maint] Bug#409987: Can't upgrade samba-common

Package: samba-common
Version: 3.0.24-2
Kernel: Linux debian 2.6.18-4-686 #1 SMP Fri Feb 2 15:10:49 UTC 2007
i686 GNU/Linux
Distro: Debian unstable
Computer: HP Compaq nx6110

I'm trying to figure this out but apt is telling me that samba-common
installed on my machine is 3.0.24-2 but the new updated version it
wants to upgrade to is 3.0.23d-4 which is lower. How is this possible?

I now can't upgrade, install, remove or use any apt functions because of
this error and I'm not sure what to do to fix it.

Here is my output:

debian:/home/justin# apt-get -f install
