E: This installation run will require temporarily removing the essential package perl-base due to a Conflicts/Pre-Depends loop. This is often bad, but if you really want to do it, activate the APT::Force-LoopBreak option.
E: Internal Error, Could not early remove perl-base

Is this a bug?  I had no perl package installed on this fresh
slink-base to potato upgraded system.
