The List says:

   apt: alpha: apt-move aptitude gnome-apt stormpkg

which means that the new apt breaks apt-move, aptitude, gnome-apt
and stormpkg get broken unless they're upgraded at the same time as
apt. Unfortunately aptitude isn't able to be upgraded (there's an update,
but it's not built on arm yet) and additionally the updated gnome-apt and
stormpkg were built with the old apt on powerpc, so can't be successfully
upgraded either.
