It's a problem that I am not able to reproduce trying to upgrade a
squeeze installation with a lot of lib32 packages (including
lib32stdc++6), neither with apt nor with aptitude.
- Are you still able to reproduce the problem?
- Do you have any configuration in /etc/apt/preferences?
- Could you please provide me the list of installed packages (dpkg -l)
on your system, so that I can try to reproduce the problem here?
