Sorry, you didn't give an explanation!! You wrote

which is simply *WRONG*. These conflicts are both definitely correct,
sorry, life is like that.

And your statement "a package manager cannot proceed ..." is again 
simply plain wrong. It *IS* working, do
	apt-get dist-upgrade
and it works. What are you talking about? Only because cupt is not
able ... (see next paragraph)

Sorry, since when is cupt the default package manager? AFAIR the last 
time I checked APT is the reference implementation, and it works.

If we want cupt working then we *might* do something, but I don't
see much need in it before we haven't straighten out other more
important bugs.

But I guess you should implement some dist-upgrade in cupt, or fix
it in some other way.

Best wishes
