This is probably becase you have not yet installed debconf 1.2.42.
Previous versions of debconf conflict with whiptail-utf8, which whiptail
suddenly started to provide. Aptitude is probably removing whiptail for
that reason; you could have hit enter on the whiptail line and expanded
the list of packages conflicting with it to see.
