And 'e' (Examine) just says:

  --\ Leave the following recommendations unresolved:                           
    libmtp9 recommends libmtp-runtime

libmtp9 recommends libmtp-runtime
--\ The following actions will resolve this dependency:                         
  -> Cancel the removal of libmtp-runtime
  -> Downgrade libmtp-runtime [1.1.12-1 (now, testing, unstable) -> 1.1.8-1+b1 (
  -> Leave the dependency "libmtp9 recommends libmtp-runtime" unresolved.       

which makes no sense since nothing related to libmtp is proposed.
