Just did what ^^^ tells me to do in my apt-installed 'snapshot Emacs'
(22.0.95) and package-menu-refresh encounters a:

  let: Symbol's function definition is void: read-from-whole-string

error.

Indeed, the only read-from-* functions I have to hand are:

 read-from-string       and     read-from-minibuffer

You may need to include the read-from-whole-string function definition
in package.el as it's clearly not a stock function, or maybe globally
replacing read-from-whole-string with read-from-string in package.el
will suffice.  I don't know because I don't know what
read-from-whole-string is supposed to do.

Or maybe, some version sniffing is all that's needed...

If I had time I'd dig deeper but...

ELPA sounds like a good concept though.

HTH
