If you think about it, the grammar of
# aptitude install some_package
0 packages upgraded, 22 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
AA BB CCCCCCCCC DDDDDDDDDDDD
AA, BB, DD are past tense, CC is future tense, or something like that.
So to make them all agree, CC should be "removed".
Or even more accurate, instead, AA should be "to upgrade", BB "to newly
install", and DD "to upgrade".
