Package: aptitude
Severity: important


aptitude don't depend on apt package but without apt can't download
packages - display error:

The method driver /usr/lib/apt/methods/http could not be found.

So update form e.g. 0.6.6-1 (depends on apt) to may result
in the removal of apt package and the need to manually repair broken
system using dpkg.
