It lasts for several weeks, I can't upgrade normally...

I've been able to upgrade normally during the entire gcc-5 transition.

Lucky you!

aptitude wanted to remove 45 packages yesterday. I spent about 5 hours to manually resolve dependencies by uninstalling packages, removing lib* packages, adding lib*v5 packages and adding the uninstalled packages again to get ALL dependencies resolved

I am not sure it it's a problem of aptitude or the resolver in general, but I was not able to "just update".
