you should, as long as all of those dependencies are satisfiable in
either debian experimental or ubuntu trusty.  debian experimental is not
guaranteed to have dependencies satisfied internally (debian unstable
users should be able to install experimental packages without trouble

apt will refuse to start the install if it can't satisfy the
dependencies though, so you can try it out without worrying that it'll
leave you in a half-broken state.

I suppose so, but i don't know how you installed 2.0.26 either, so i
don't know how to remove it, sorry!
