>From a first glance it looks like a dependency problem:

sysvinit: Depends e2fsprogs (>= 1.15-1)
e2fsprogs: version 1.22-1 is available, but:
e2fsprogs-bf version 1.22-1 will be installed, so the dependency is
not fulfilled.

I guess that sysvinit should have a dependency like

e2fsprogs (>= 1.15-1) | e2fsprogs-bf (>= 1.15-1)
