The package was split up a little bit in Ubuntu (and soon in Debian). You want
to remove couchdb-bin, which the couchdb package depends on. couchdb-bin is
installed because Desktop CouchDB ( depends on
it - it's what allows Ubuntu One to do its magic.

Then again, it sounds like Lionel's answer worked for you. :-)

unstable pool near you.
