But then I will never know when there's a real update unless I keep
opening the updater and checking.

So, yes, ignoring the problem is, I suppose, one option (akin to
ignoring the error messages that pop up on my wife's Windows box at
boot time). But I really want the system to forget all about

(And I figure that there's a good chance that if adept is this
confused about one package, it's only a matter of time before it gets
equally confused about more packages. And then there's the corollory:
what if I actually wanted to have vmware-player on my system? Right
now, there seems no way I could install it even if I wanted to.)

So really I need to find a way to get the database into a self-consistent state.
