It is not normally correct to mark bugs as duplicate in this case,
simply because it's the same assertion that failed. There may be many
causes for this: there is a wide opportunity for any errors in the
dependency management code to result in this assertion.
The correct approach to debugging it is:
* Get the /var/lib/dpkg from the offending system. Normally
when this bug triggers, running
dpkg --configure --pending
with that /var/lib/dpkg will reproduce the bug.
* Check whether the version in Debian sid has the same bug.
There have been several such bugs fixed in sid recently.
* If the version in Debian _does_ have the same bug please
file the bug in Debian too and also bring it to my attention by
emailing me at ian at davenant.greenend.org.uk. I will prepare a fix.
