Automatically-installed packages are being marked as manually installed

Asked by Shahar Or on 2015-07-29

Hi and thank you for the remarkable Aptitude.

I'm on the development version of Ubuntu and upgrade packages daily using aptitude.

Upon reviewing daily upgrades, I consistently discover that many packages which I am sure to have previously marked as automatically-installed, are now marked as manually installed.

What could be the cause of this, please?

a question rather than a bug

If you have a bug reported you don't need a question as well, let alone two...

Can you help with this problem?
