Package: aptitude
Version: 0.8.13-5
Severity: important

After marking some packages for upgrade, I get:

--\ Packages being deleted due to unsatisfied dependencies (1)
id  lsb-base         -50.2 kB  11.2                     11.2


Linux Standard Base init script functionality
lsb-base (remove, 11.2) will be automatically removed because of dependency    ▒
errors:                                                                        ▒

but no errors shown!!!

It seems to be triggered by the upgrade of sysvinit packages from
3.04-1 to 3.05-2. In the sysvinit 3.05-1 log message:

  * Take over library scripts from lsb-base.
