Are you running sid? It could be that a package being updated is
conflicting in someway with what aptitude wants to remove.  If you go
into aptitude and press G (only once), you will see all the actions it
wants to take.

Where it wants to remove something, press + and you'll probably get an
indication of where the conflict lies.
