Thanks for the report.  Do you have the logs around for those
installations attempts, of aptitude (the relevant section in
/var/log/aptitude*), apt (same for /var/log/apt/*) and dpkg

It reminds me a bit of this one:

Since aptitude doesn't do the low level operations, e.g. tell dpkg to
unpack, but instead these actions are achieved by instructing apt what
to do with packages in a more abstract way (upgrade, install, remove), I
am bit puzzled.
