Default python-twisted-core on my machines inexplicably still old, breaking installation of python-twisted

I didn't mean to, honest! I suppose not being smart enough to use a
mailing list means that I'm also not smart enough to use Debian Sid...

No proxy. I highly doubt my ISP is caching things, but if they are,
man I am all flavors of screwed.

Nope. No pinning, no restrictions, no rules. No fancy apt ninja stuff.

I've tried about 7 different mirrors, all to the same avail. apt-get
update doesn't help, either. If only it were that simple...

This is a problem with the SID repos, I double checked it myself and
could only pull down 10.0 not 10.1, I would submit a ticket on the
ticket system to let them know that there is a mismatch in versions. It
happens since it is afterall very unstable and crazy in the head :P

Default python-twisted-core on my machines inexplicably still old, breaking installation of python-twisted

Just a preamble, I posted [this question on Server Fault][1], and they've
explained what's at fault:

They've also explained how to fix it.

So, as of this email, this is where I stand. I'm Debian Sid on AMD64, but I
have access to Debian Testing's packages when things get a little nutty. Like
here. It's a fine workaround, but the problem still exists. With that in mind,
now is the time for me to make some replies.

This is why I use Debian Sid. I can identify with it.

As for the ticketing, I might do that later. I'm allright with making an utter
fool of myself on debian-user, but the actual BTS? I'm not smart enough for
that right now. Hell, I'm not really even smart enough for Debian Unstable.

Nope, no unofficial packaged installed. Everything is stock sid stuff, with
the caveat of the workaround described above. No advanced apt ninja trickery
here.

$ apt-cache policy python-twisted-core
python-twisted-core:
Installed: 10.0.0-3
