The upgrade is very difficult

In fact I give up the upgrade altogether.
I'll have to come to it through another angle:
There are tons of packages which I deem old and unnecessary, and I find no
simple way not to install them.

And there is no simple way not to install konqueror.


PS: Also aptitude put all automatically installed packages to satisfy
dependencies in manually installed: hundreds of them.

It is a very difficult upgrade.

If you download the meta-package source for kde-baseapps, you could remove the
konqueror dependency from the control file, bump the version number, and repack
it. I know this isn't ideal, but if you are willing to invest time in the
task, it is doable.
Good luck,

In Synaptic this is a very easy problem to solve, in auto-remove select all packages and go to menu, package and uncheck auto-installed packages. I then run upgrade-system(uses deborphan) in the konsole to clean the mess up.
