I think I may have been hit by bug 575137.  I am using btrfs, and there were 
some issues during the install, but I do not believe I have suffered any file 
system corruption in the dpkg databse or the aptitude package.

In particular, (debsums -a aptitude) reports all the files are in good 
condition.  (update-alternatives --display aptitude) shows:
No alternatives for aptitude.

I initially installed on this system, but have since 
upgraded to  Is there a good way for me to establish an alternative 
that will not mess up on the next upgrade?  Or, is this problem supposedly 
fixed in and I should just upgrade now?
