    The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain the petris package.
    
    For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.0.1-4sarge0.
    
    For the unstable distribution the package will be updated shortly.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your petris package.
