My solution was to first install gazebo (version 1.9.x) via sudo apt-get install gazebo, then do a sudo aptitude install ros-hydro-desktop-full and one of the installation alternatives was to keep the current gazebo simulator version rather than installing gazebo-current. So in that sense, it's solved :-)

Just for curiosity though, I'm still unsure why it would the package list for apt-get install would be affected by the files on my computer. Shouldn't it be pulling that list from a server? If anyone cares to explain or point me to an explaination, I'd be very grateful.

Why would it be different depending on which computer I'm using? If anyone cares to explain or point me to an explaination, explanation, I'd be very grateful.
