I'm not sure if it will be related but in later attempts to update I got
this internal error:

root@orion:~# aptitude upgrade -V
Resolving dependencies...
Internal error: found 2 (choice -> promotion) mappings for a single choice.
No packages will be installed, upgraded, or removed.
0 packages upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 8 not upgraded.
Need to get 0 B of archives. After unpacking 0 B will be used.
