Something I have noticed over the past year or more. Why does Debian's
conflict resolution system automatically react by wanting to install a
ton of packages? It seems like before, it would refuse to install the
offending package, but now it wants to install tens or sometimes
hundreds of packages (e.g. all of Gnome or all of KDE). It usually
takes 3 or 4 s there a way to manage upgrades so it does not
immediately resort to uninstalling major portions of the system?
