No, not exactly.  What the Application manager does is more similar to
"apt-get install".  It will not upgrade the system packages
automatically theway "apt-get upgrade" does.

You are spot on.  This is chaos and the mistral repositories should
not contain the broken packages.  They need to be fixed and/or
reverted to the same version that is in the IT2006 flash image.

People here are aware of this... (and also appropriately embarrassed).
