Which is the reason for the existence of the 'partial' screen - so that
userscan see what is going to be done before it happens.
Likewise if you downgrade a package, or hold it back, setup will try to
upgrade it every time. We need more information about the users desire -
to allow 'Holding' a package, or setting one package to 'test' and all
the others to 'curr', but I've not had time to code that yet.
