I have a situation where aptitude marks a package
cgroup-bin as broken:
$ aptitude search '^cgroup-bin$' pB cgroup-bin ...
In its UI, aptitude provides the following explanation:
Some dependencies of cgroup-bin are not satisfied: * cgroup-bin depends on cgroup-tools
dpkg -l cgroup-bin and
dpkg -l cgroup-tools issue
dpkg-query: no packages found matching ... because neither package is installed.
apt-cache policy cgroup-bin and
apt-cache policy cgroup-tools identify version 0.41-6 from the Debian repository as candidate versions.
aptitude show cgroup-bin lists these (relevant) dependencies:
aptitude show cgroup-tools lists those:
Breaks: cgroup-bin (< 0.40~rc1-3~) Replaces: cgroup-bin (< 0.40~rc1-3~)
I have another machine which has the same properties but where the package is not marked as broken.
What is going on here? Why is package
cgroup-bin marked as broken (when from the dependencies it would seem that versions 0.41-6 can live in unison) and how can I remedy the situation?
