Hi, I went through this yesterday, I had "aptitude-gtk" installed for
testing purpose, but it went "boom" with dependency problems so I
removed it during the upgrade. After that, also aptitude was marked
installed, it wasn't available, even not to the "which" or "whereis"
I removed aptitude with apt-get, installed it again from testing, and
now it works fine again.
