Alas, there has been an upload of apt to testing-security which broke
things, because that version of apt provides libapt-pkg-libc6.9-6-4.6
instead.  I've informed the testing security team about the situation,
CC'ing bug #448249 which is responsible for this.

Everyone suffering from this bug should downgrade apt to or,
even better, from stable-security.  Then aptitude,
synaptic and other reverse dependencies of libapt-pkg-libc6.7-6-4.6 can
be reinstalled.
