I had to fix the packages which still depended on lzma instad of xz :(

Or at least that was the case a few weeks ago when I had to update 
my wifes update after a few months. 

My reaction back then was to say "well, then I'll wait till the transition 
path to xz-utils is clear". For amd64 that's already the case, but for 
ppc it wasn't and I'm not sure that it is now. 

I think the reason for the problems was partly, that both provide the 
same files, so they blocked each other... 

Best wishes,
