Works fine for me on both Debian Sid amd64 and i386.

Such issues are likely caused by either broken package dependencies,
not uptodate package lists or by packages from experimental
incompatible with versions from unstable..

In this case this looks like inconsistent versions of binary packages
build by the gcc-8 being available.

For example there is no version 8-20171016-1 of gcc-8-base in Debian
anymore since Monday morning (i.e. 1.5 days ago).

Updating your package lists (or switching the mirror if that one is
out-of-date) should fix your issue.

And refrain from reporting uninstallablity bug reports against
aptitude (or apt) without having tested your issue against uptodate
package lists beforehand. In most cases, such cases are no bug in the
packaging tools, but either packages or the local system.
