Actually the script that does the aptitude full-upgrade includes an
aptitude update immediately before it, but in the meantime I have made
the error go away by doing this, strangely enough:

apt-get update
apt-get dist-upgrade

The above was done manually, not in a script. I had a bunch of packages
upgraded, one removed, and then out of curiosity I ran the script that
uses aptitude instead of apt-get, and the error message no longer

Very peculiar.
