Just curious, can you reproduce the issue with the steps I outlined?

From what I can see, once /var/lib/aptitude/pkgstates exists, there is a
complete disconnect between the autobit state of aptitude and apt.

The first time /var/lib/aptitude/pkgstates is created, it inherits the
autobit state from the apt db, but after that, any changes apt makes are
no longer applied to aptitude.

Is this not happening for you?

Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
universe are pointed away from Earth?
