And that's the answer. You probably know that no one Debian package will ever install
something into /usr/local/bin, so you had installed some version of aria2 from sources or
similar. Apt (and dpkg) know nothing about this version of aria2, so you can't blame it.
I'm closing this bug. I would advice to do cleanup of your system and just re-install
aria2 from official repositories, as it almost always better to have robust system without
a mess.

Also, keep in mind that you have to switch to unstable to have new versions of packages,
while your current 'candidate' versions will be from 'stable' distribution.

No, bug reports and investigations are things that have to be logged as fully as possible.
