bug#44994: dselect should use --fix-missing

Package: dpkg
Severity: wishlist

When using the apt-get method, dselect should install packages using the
--fix-missing option  to apt-get.  When using  a mirror, in  fact, it is
very  frequent to  find inconsistencies  in the  archive status,  due to
delays and mirroring problems, so I am very often forced to give up with
dselect and using `apt-get --fix-missing dselect-upgrade'.
