Your problem should become clearer if you test your upgrade first by
using "apt-get upgrade -d" rather than aptitude. The "-d" option is
to make apt-get " Download only" and "NOT install or unpack" the
I strongly suspect that your "Packages.gz" has the wrong relative
paths (in relation to the location of the actual *.deb packages).
