The advice above was not to rely on the tool to magically auto-compute a 
full solution for you, but instead to interactively navigate your 
complex(!) multi-suite system and make better sense of it yourself: 
Might help reveal a package you'd accidentally held back, or some 
deprecated library flagged as non-auto which you know you don't need, 
etc. etc.
