Yes, yuck! I would check for leftover packages from rh9. Also, make sure
that the configuration files for apt are indeed pointing to the fc1
repository. To check for planetccrma rh9 packages you could do:

  rpm -q -a | grep rh90

Anything with "rh90" in the release should be replaced with the
equivalent for fc1. 

Hmmm, and/or this:

rpm -q -a --qf "%{NAME}-%{VERSION}-%{RELEASE}  %{BUILDHOST}\n"
| grep -v redhat.com | grep -v fedoralegacy

which will print packages that were not built on a machine at
"redhat.com" or from the fedoralegacy project (or that have names that
include those strings, of course).
