This indicates that the geany-plugin-scope package in Knoppix needs to 
be updated to take account of the updated geany-plugins-common. I don’t 
really know how Knoppix derives its packages from Debian but sometimes 
this used to happen to me when I used testing when pacakges depending on 
one another were not transitioned from unstable at the same time.

So, this is a problem at Knoppix’s end, there isn’t much the Geany 
developers can do about it.

In terms of checking for ‘breakage’ potential, you can check the 
‘Depends’ line for each package using your favourite APT tool and 
compare it with the version of the package you want to install.

I don’t know why you consider my helping you ‘posturing’. I tend to be 
quite grateful for anyone offering me help with my computer problems 
online. As for condescendment, I found your response to my initial post 
to have quite that air about it.

I hope this helps anyway.
