Thanks for the suggestion. I'm not sure I understand all of what you said.  
But I deleted the claws catalog in the apps manager and refreshed everything.  
libtasn1-3 still doesn't show up as an installable application.

Referencing my previous email, looking at

Leads me to believe libtasn should (maybe) be found here:
but it's not.  I'm totally confused and getting way beyond my understanding of 
how the apt manager functions, so maybe I'm thrashing off in a wildly wrong 

Thanks, Steve
