thanks you very much for your answer.

You are right this is python2.7:any and not python2.7:all.

I'm using Debian unstable version I installed on a MV2120 (home nas server,
Arm architecture) some time back but that I rarely updated.

I'm now using the 'sid' repository.

I thought that maybe that could have been a bug, but apparently it just
that I need to delve la little deeper into Debian...
As I told you I'm mainly a slackware user, so it's a long shot to get to
know a new system.

Anyway, thanks a lot for your message and your help.

Happy 2014 !
