It seems that this was a one time event. Octave 6.4 and the audio toolbox install and work fine in Debian testing.
Please close!

Looks like the b1 build of audio in debian requires octave 6.4 and so is updating octave.

It may also be that audio is the first octave package that attempts to be updated so is the one that causes the warning to be displayed  and if it had been a another package first, it would have been the one that caused the warnin instead ... but im not a debian user

Don't know what to make of this, just got a warning while updating. I'm running Debian Testing. It's probably rather a Debian thing, maybe the maintainer for the Octave package should have a look.

dpkg: liboctave8:amd64: dependency problems, but removing anyway as you requested:
