Where did you get this idea of using aptitude, Carlo?  Is this in
current release/installation guide?  Curious.  safe-upgrade may be
harmless.  But full-upgrade had some odd behavior cases.

(OP may have been hit by multiarch related issue.  Your suggestion of
"apt-get install ..." or similar may help avoid some of them.)

I thought we are not recommending to use the command line use of
aptitude for the release-to-release upgrade.  (I love aptitude in
console terminal view.)
