Thank you for the feedback.

As per the instructions on the website, could you please try with:

sudo apt-get dist-upgrade


sudo apt full-upgrade

The output I would expect, including intended package removals, is shown
in the paste below.


However, on your aptitude output.

It is just a breaks/replaces on any version as we want to get rid of
that transitional package. Hence, yes the 16.12.3 one is superfluous,
but does no harm.

Removing knotes is not something I see.

kdepimlibs-kio-plugins is meant to be removed

Those libs again are meant to be removed and replaced with renamed ones.
