The problem with MATE packages I posted yesterday can be solved by preferences file.
Create the file as root, by any text editor, nano for example:
and past the code:
Pin: origin repo.mate-desktop.org
apt-get update && apt-get dist upgrade
From now, the package manager will be installing and upgrading MATE packages from MATE repository instead of Debian repos.
