Bug#43205: dpkg: install-info refuses to run

Package: dpkg
Severity: normal

While trying to install ssh, apt-get decided to remove gmp2 and install
the library libgmp2.  But the process keeps on failing *without giving
pertinent information*.  This might not be a right bug report, but I
still wish to express the fact that there are no --verbose options which
would help me understand how I could fix this process.

Thanks a lot for the work!
