I still can't see how are you going to solve this case:
I have backports enabled. There are packages that are newer than the one in release. I
haven't installed them. Now new update requires such package that is both in release and in
backports. Update will pull package from enabled backports as they are newer - i didn't want
that. And you can't just submit new backport that blocks it. Older backports are still
there. So you can install those if new backport doesn't work for you (the same we have for
updates at the moment).
