comment Why is there no “mark for upgrade” in Synaptic Package Manager for upgradeable packages?
Ah, I wasn't aware of that: I had been a bit confused by there being an Update Manager, a Package Manager, and also a Software Manager in the first place. I think it's a bit more clear now.

Also, I could've sworn I already solved this once, a few weeks ago. What causes this breakage to keep occurring?

@slm I'm not willing to post the log because of the detail it contains. I don't see anything that occurs exactly three times. What am I looking for?

@terdon I was unaware of this: I've posted and responded to many such questions on SE. However, if it will increase the chances of it being read and answered, I will edit forthwith.

Didn't realize that. Considering 16 was the newest version available when I installed it in May, well...that was quick...
