What does

apt-cache policy git

tells to you?

What do you have in your /etc/apt/source.list ?

I have no idea what "openstack" is, but somewhere down your message I
noticed the word "lucid" which hints what you describe might be
happening on an Ubuntu system -- is that true?  If it is, why did not
you tell us anything about your setup?  Posting an output of running

lsb_release -a

would be just enough.  Please do.
