Default Can't upgrade anyting in Sid

For the last few days apt-get upgrades in Sid always fail with this
message:

E: Internal error: APT:kgPackageManager::MaxLoopCount reached in
SmartConfigure for libc-bin:i386, aborting

According to bug report 669060 this is supposed to be fiexd by the
latest version of apt (0.9.1). I downloaded this and installed it with
dpkg but the error still comes up. I also tried downloading and
installing the latest version of libc-bin, mentioned in the error line,
but that had depnendency problems. Any ideas what to try next?

Did you upgrade libapt-pkg4.12 to version 0.9.1 as well? That seems to
have fixed this problem for me.

Aptitude was not completely broken on my system: I could no longer do a
full upgrade all at once, but it was possible to upgrade just the
critical apt packages with aptitude without running into the error
quoted above. You can try if any of the following commands work:

aptitude upgrade '~i?source-package(^apt$)'
aptitude upgrade apt libapt-pkg4.12
apt-get install apt libapt-pkg4.12

If none of the above works then you can download the packages manually

wget ftp://ftp.debian.org/debian/pool/main/a/apt/apt_0.9.1_$(dpkg --print-architecture).deb
wget ftp://ftp.debian.org/debian/pool/main/a/apt/libapt-inst1.5_0.9.1_$(dpkg --print-architecture).deb
wget ftp://ftp.debian.org/debian/pool/main/a/apt/libapt-pkg4.12_0.9.1_$(dpkg --print-architecture).deb

and install them directly with dpkg (as root or with sudo):

dpkg -i apt_0.9.1_$(dpkg --print-architecture).deb
dpkg -i libapt-pkg4.12_0.9.1_$(dpkg --print-architecture).deb
dpkg -i libapt-inst1.5_0.9.1_$(dpkg --print-architecture).deb

If you do not get lucky with any of the above then show us the error
messages that you get.

Have you contacted the current maintainer?
If not, you'll need to do that first and after two weeks, if nothing has
changed, you can request this package to b be disowned.
That is the standard procedure.

I'm getting almost the same scenario:

E: Internal error: APT:kgPackageManager::MaxLoopCount reached in
SmartConfigure for grep:i386, aborting

It appears to be something with apt rather than individual packages

When attempting to follow previous suggestions in this thread, believing
libapt was the culprit and attempting to upgrade that, I get:

E: Internal error: APT:kgPackageManager::MaxLoopCount reached in
SmartConfigure for libapt-pkg4.12:i386, aborting

What exactly is going on here?
Anybody have any clue.
TIA.
Regards,

Weaver.

Use 'dpkg -i' to install libapt from /var/cache/apt/archives.

O.K., I've checked out that directory and libapt is sitting there waiting
for install, but I'm not used to running dpkg.
What is the full command format please?

And why isn't aptitude handling this?
TIA.
