But “libbabl-0.1-0” seems somehow picked from another
repository, the version convention “1:0.1.44-dmo1” looks like it
is designed to supersede Debian's initial package on purpose.

Sounds like the sort of thing the third party repository at
deb-multimedia.org does, and the 'dmo1' in the package name is a big
clue that is the case here. Basically, every time a version of a
library in deb-multimedia falls behind Debian you're likely to get some
kind of breakage, because it has used the epoch number to fake up this
'I'm a higher version so install me instead of the of official Debian
library'.

If the OP is running Sid with deb-multimedia then this sort of thing is
going to be a reoccurring problem.


Thnaks for the explanatio. I was indeed using deb-multimedia.org
repository a while ago.

Mystery solved!
