somehow between a "dist-upgrade -d" and actually running the dist-upgrade, a file was corrupted. chromium-browser might not have installed completely. i purged and re-installed multiple times and still got the same error messages. now iceweasel is similarly affected.

      Code:
root@siduxbox2:/home/ike# apt-get dist-upgrade -d

After this operation, 0 B of additional disk space will be used.

i ran both "apt-get -f install" and "dpkg --configure -a"

they seem to be running fine, but what could i do to get rid of these errors?

thank you so much, ike.

edit: i looked into the file /var/lib/dpkg/alternatives/gnome-www-browser and it was indeed corrupt. it said nothing about browsers, but instead talked about libgudev... so i replaced it with the same file from another similar aptosid system and ran "apt-get -f install".

i hope this is ok. i will mark this post "solved".
