According to the package description, xmess-sdl is now a
transitional dummy package depending on the new mess package. In
fact, the unrelated bug report you linked even mentions that. This
is how package renames are generally supposed to work.

In short, what used to be xmess-sdl is now in a package called mess
instead. If your upgrade was successful, you should see that package
installed too and that should have actual contents.
