Bug#25836: dpkg: update should be smarter

Package: dpkg
The update methods should ask whether you want to merge to the available
instead of always clearing it. It would be very nice, especially when one
has more than one CDs with the packages, which is the case of hamm

It would also help in the cases when you have installed some local packages
(like kernel image) -- updating now results in "obsolete" packages.

-- System Information
