Do you want to continue [Y/n]?

Look at this! it wants to REMOVE "bind9 bind9-host bind9utils dnsutils
libbind9-50 libisccfg50".

What is going wrong here?

Try to use aptitude, it makes smarter decisions when solving package
dependencies than apt/dselect

# aptitude update && aptitude safe-upgrade

Are you saying that dselect is no longer usefull on doing security upgrades? I've been using dselect for over 15 years doing just that. The only time I've used aptitude is for doing major version upgrades. If there is a problem with dselect let's get it fixed or remove it from use.
