Package files containing references to new work on the next version of
Unslung to be erroneously pushed to the stable feed.
Since the referenced .ipk packages were not pushed along with the
Packages file, ipkg failed to download and install the packages.
However, ipkg records the fact that it is attempting to install a
package in the status file, and it seems that it continues to attempt to
do so even after the reference to the new version of the package has
been removed from the Packages file.
Removing these 'need-to-install' entries from the status file puts
things back in order.
with the help of one of the previous messages i've removed the
duplicates and now its fixed.
