During dist-upgrade today tvtime broke. Without researching much it looks like a packaging error. Removing and purging tvtime removed errors from dist-upgrade. Trying to reinstall tvtime gave same errors seen in dist-upgrade.
If you use tvtime I suggest putting a hold on it.

I'm curious, are there still analogue terrestrial or cable TV broadcasters in your area or do you use tvtime for connecting to a VHS player?
The bug itself has already been reported to Debian, in #732207 and #732607.

I used to have it hooked up to a VHS player but I've moved everything to DVD or mkv. There still are analogue TV and cable signals available here although I'm not using them. Recently I've installed a Digital TV antenna and am enjoying free to air TV that way. I think I'll leave tvtime uninstalled until I can think of a use for it again. I've had this install rolling since 2009 and along the way things get installed and never removed.
