Did it happen only for a few days, or for a long time, for example until
you reinstalled?  Or still happening now?

I'm wondering if it was a transient problem in apt, or a corrupt file or
something, I haven't seen this in recent times.  Giving the backtrace
and that segfaults in apt code, I am not sure if this can be dealt with
from aptitude.
