sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install ros-boxturtle-pr2

Should have the correct behavior.  It will re-download all the
packages.  We apologize for the large size for the moment.   It will
not accumulate old versions.  You can have side-by-side installations
of different releases, e.g., boxturtle and latest, but you cannot have
side-by-side installations of different versions of boxturtle (unless
you do it manually through svn).
