Upgrade from jessie to strech wants to bloat by system

Urs Thuermann:

I see that some new versions of packages are installed without the old versions being removed, although they are marked as automatically installed, e.g. Linux kernel, clang, llvm, and some others. For example

  # aptitude search "~i clang"
  i   clang                     - C, C++ and Objective-C compiler (LLVM based)
  i A clang-3.5                 - C, C++ and Objective-C compiler (LLVM based)
  i A libclang-common-3.5-dev   - clang library - Common development package
  i A libclang1-3.5             - C interface to the clang library

and aptitude full-upgrade will install clang-3.8 but not remove clang-3.5.

Ben Finney:

That shows the ‘clang’ package is *not* marked auto-installed.

M. Thuermann did explicitly say clang-3.5, not clang.
