I have been looking into this; that is, I think I have gone down two
blind alleys :-)
Unfortunately, given that the latest data on this is now over two years
old, and the URLs are stale, I am nearly certain I cannot duplicate the
exact problem. So, I am left to find a current test case. Looking at
http://piuparts.debian.org/sid/, I am not certain where to start. So,
if anyone can provide input re:
1) How likely/possible is it that this was a bug in apt two years ago
that has been subsequently fixed ?
I note that, in the example above, debconf is a virtual package.
Current aptitude/apt-get appears to generate error (even with
APT::Get::Assume-Yes), when a virtual package is selected for install.
a) the piuparts code to select the proper "specific package for virtual
package depends" is broken, or
b) apt operated differently in the past; i.e. it would "auto-magically
c) I am more confused than even I thought.
2) Is there a specfic package, or even a specific category on
http://piuparts.debian.org/ that I can review to troubleshoot further ?
