I have made some quick tests with the same sets of packages as before and it
seems it fixes the issue.

However, you had stated in the related piuparts.d.o page that "the
solution is not to enable removal, but understand why the
piuparts-depends-dummy package has to be removed to install the ptjer
packages... "

I thought there were other problems implied with the --no-remove option…
