Probably related to the newer version of whatever you were using.

Debian packages are (and have been for a while now) all lowercase.  I'd
suggest trying

apt-get install enlightenment (or whatever the package for it is called)

after an update, which should check out dependancies for enlightenment and
install everything correctly.  If that doesn't help, try looking at the
Debian Bug Tracking System (BTS) at http://bugs.debian.org/<packagename> and
see if it's been mentioned.  Otherwise you could consider filing a bug
against the package.  Either way, at this point in time, I have no
