Bug#258913: base-config: Potentially confusing messages displayed at the console when installing packages

Package: base-config
Severity: minor
Tags: d-i

When installing the packages after tasksel, I guess base-config calls apt or
aptitude with some special arguments (no way to check currently) which
results in lots of messages like "Sorry but xxxxx package is already using
the last version" (I don't have the exact wording here).

These messages are harmless but could confuse users, however.

I guess this pertains to base-config though I'm unsure.
