I'm coming in late on this. Aptitude threatened to remove itself here
(sid) during the last couple of upgrades because apt and apt-utils were
being upgraded but aptitude is dependant on the currently installed
version; so I held apt and apt-utils.
I suspect that you're seeing this behaviour because you've upgraded
these to 0.6.38 but synaptic/aptitude depend on 0.5.28.6.
You could downgrade these two packages manually to rectify the problem
