could be, your apt is stuck with that broken package (somewhere internally  
is probably an "unfinished job!" flag set).
try to download the package manually (wget or so)
apt-cache show linux-libc-dev
shows in Filename the path, just prepend your favourite repository's url
and install it by hand
dpkg -i linux-libc-dev_2.6.26-4_armel.deb

after that
apt-ge -f install
might be a good idea
