I'll start off by saying this is almost definitely my fault. I'm still trying to get the hang of setting up my sources.list file correctly. That being said, I get the following error when trying to upgrade:
ioos@crunchy:~$ sudo apt-get upgrade Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done The following packages will be upgraded: crunchbang-configs 1 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded. Need to get 0 B/37.3 kB of archives.

It looks like both crunchbang-configs and bash need the file /etc/skel/.profile, right? But I'm not really sure how to resolve it...

Make a backup of "/etc/skel/.profile", then remove it and try upgrading again.
Thank you sir. I updated to the new new package. It works!
