Hi there,

i'd tried to dist-upgrade my debian sarge to "stable". But actually 
there is a conflict between package passwd and package debianutils.
It looks like this:

Preparing to replace debianutils 2.8.4 (using 
.../debianutils_2.30_i386.deb) ...
Unpacking replacement debianutils ...
dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/debianutils_2.30_i386.deb 
 trying to overwrite `/usr/sbin/add-shell', which is also in package passwd
Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

thanks for help, martin
