I had no idea of what would be a correct fix for my (higher-level)
problem here – M-A’ing one or more packages may or may not have been
a fix. I’ve fought enough with M-A to be *more* confused about it
instead of less, on Friday. (Things like, arch:all packages suddenly
depending on and/or being counted as being arch:any packages for the
architecture I do *dot* want them to count, and all that; apt was even
more confusing than dpkg to me there.) So I wasn’t able to draft a
solution myself.
