[vox-tech] aptitude failue Could not early remove e2fsprogs

A debian install in VMware is refusing to behave.
Below is the end of the aptitude output.

663 packages upgraded, 0 newly installed, 2 to remove and 79 not upgraded.
Need to get 0B/466MB of archives. After unpacking 34.0MB will be used.
Do you want to continue? [Y/n/?] y
E: This installation run will require temporarily removing the essential
package e2fsprogs due to a Conflicts/Pre-Depends loop. This is often bad,
but if you really want to do it, activate the APT::Force-LoopBreak option.
E: Internal Error, Could not early remove e2fsprogs
Ack!  Something bad happened while installing packages.  Trying to recover:
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree
Reading extended state information
Initializing package states... Done
Reading task descriptions... Done
I'm stumped and apparently my googling skills are wierded today.
Any ideas? and Thanks in advance.
