Bug#168465: apt: shouldn't always print statistics

Package: apt
Version: 0.5.4
Severity: wishlist


% sudo apt-get install apt

Sorry, apt is already the newest version.
0 packages upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0  not upgraded.

There's no point in printing the statistics for all these individual
requests, especially when they're all zeros (sometimes it'll include
other numbers, but that's still usually irrelevant for the situation
at hand).

It's a badly designed message, because it slows down people's scanning of
the screen -- it's common for the error message to be printed last. :)
