> At what version is libapt-pkg4.12 on this system?

# aptitude show libapt-pkg4.12
Package: libapt-pkg4.12                  
New: yes
State: installed
Automatically installed: yes
Multi-Arch: same
Version: 0.9.3

> Installing package bzip2 or updating apt and libapt-pkg4.12 to 0.9.3

# cat /etc/apt/apt.conf
Apt::AutoRemove::RecommendsImportant "false";
Apt::AutoRemove::SuggestsImportant "false";
Apt::Install-Recommends "false";
Apt::Install-Suggests "false";

I usually use only aptitude. Apt was used only for the purpose of identifying the problem. It's my understanding that other people are having this (or similar looking) problem as well.
