I just tested the Feisty packages from  http://download.qgis.org, and
I'm having problems with deps.  I did a fresh "apt-get update; apt-get
upgrade; apt-get dist-upgrade", and I still get

dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of libqgis1:
 libqgis1 depends on libqt4-core (>= 4.3.0); however:
  Version of libqt4-core on system is 4.2.3-0ubuntu3.

After some research, I successfully installed the reqs using feisty-backports

There's a good discussion of backports ( and pinning to limit
backports to packages of one's choice while gutsy settles down) here:

Perhaps the requirement of feisty-backports along with this link could
be included in the comments for Feisty at http://download.qgis.org.
