It does seem strange that there is no line saying, "The following
packages will be upgraded".  Was that just missed in the cut-n-paste?
But it is important information.

On first pass it would seem that almost any upgrade in unstable would
want to upgrage at least one package and therefore it must just be
missing from your post.  I would look over that list of packages and
see which of them is pulling in emacs20 and pushing out gnupg and
other such dependencies.
