Delete the deb-multimedia line in your list.
The change is only important for those who are tracking original debian sources.
But now I'm more convinced that we are having a problem in the repos issue.
Allow me to think aloud with you.
1- I believe that LMDE has changed it's mind and is not a real rolling distro anymore, Which was one point of strength and people liked it.
2- I don't think changing repos manually is a good idea. I always tend to think as a complete noob who comes from the windoze world (where everything is enforced on the user), and hesitant to try linux. In this regards, I believe something should be done in synaptic, like leting the user do checkboxes to chose how he wants his updates, in simple english and synaptic does the rest and choses the convenient repos, eg:
- I want the most stable and secure distro.
- I want bleeding edge distro but just working. / Or - I can take some risk of a crash from time to time.
- I want the latest being tested even not usable!
3- In regards to changing repos, I have experienced "Yum" (as far as I can remember) in OpenSuse which had an option to downgrade to several versions earlier.
I wonder If we can have such thing.
Again, all what I'm talking about is out of caring about my favourite distro and that I want it to be always no. 1 and the most leading. And I believe it can be done.
If you are interested to discuss this please suggest where to start a thread to discuss.
