I have multiarch enabled, and both libgl1-nvidia-glx:amd64 and
libgl1-nvidia-glx:i386 installed, but I can't reproduce this
(otherwise I certainly wouldn't have gone ahead and uploaded
nvidia-graphics-drivers anyways). Can you please attach a copy of
/var/log/apt/history.log and /var/log/apt/term.log to this bug report?
I'm curious to see what combination of upgraded packages could have
caused this.

(Also, a nitpick: Policy 7.6.1 has nothing to do with multiarch skew,
which is what this looks like.)
