Yes, that's right. The problem is that now that you've upgraded to  
299.100, you can't access the packages in the version 200 repository  
anymore -- the version 299.x/300 repository has different stuff. (We  
split it up this way because there were a lot of changes between the  
20x series and the 300 series, and there's a good chance that a  
library written for 200 won't work in 299/300.)
