Can you please send the full output of "aptitude show
gobject-introspection" and "apt-cache policy gobject-introspection"?

I have a slight suspicion that aptitude and apt might refer to
different architectures of gobject-introspection in this case (in
which both might be correct, just not displaying the expected or
multiple packages).
