I get this error if I upgrade the stable distribution of the debian partition image from the colinux website directly to testing. What you need to do first is this: do an apt-get update/apt-get dist-upgrade against stable first ( I.E. do it as soon as you put the stock image into place). THEN you can change the /etc/apt/sources.list to testing/unstable and upgrade to it. For some reason, upgrading to testing first without upgrading stable creates a weird situation with the upgrading of e2fsprogs. My solution usually fixes it though.

What did you do last?
Which version of debian is installed?
This is not a colinux specific problem, so maybe you should ask in a debian list. The mentioned ocurrences are by mixing version and uncompleted upgrades.
