[Aptitude-devel] Bug#570377: More information

I found that adding the apt.conf option

Aptitude::Always-Use-Safe-Resolver "true";

results in aptitude selecting the upgrade rather than the removal, but ONLY
command-line aptitude. command-line obeys apt.conf, even disregarding the
command-line "full-upgrade" invocation.

On the other hand, TUI aptitude seems to have disregarded apt.conf; this
may be related to bug

I will continue to look for the root cause and a desirable solution.
