Upgrade been showing Epiphany dependency issues


aptitude full-upgrade has been giving the following for some time now:
Code:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
  epiphany-browser: Conflicts: epiphany-gecko but 2.29.3-1 is to be installed.
The following actions will resolve these
dependencies:

Keep the following packages at their current version:
epiphany-browser [2.26.3-2 (now)]
epiphany-browser-data [2.26.3-2 (now)]
epiphany-gecko [2.26.3-2 (now)]

Score is 140

Accept this solution? [Y/n/q/?]
Accepting the solution starts the upgrading process. At the end, however, it still shows
Code:
Current status: 3 updates [-15].
which I guess are updates to the three Epiphany stuffs.

How can I resolve this? Or, can I remove/purge Epiphany from system since I don't use it?

not sure. you could try removing it, but if you run full gnome it might be you run into that metapackage problem. as i ain't use metapackages i am not sure how to deal with it (should be something like aptitude hold -all, but when is it run? after one did remove epiphany-browser?)
if it was me i would just leave it the way it is. or try installing the missing dependencies from sid. or simply remove epiphany and see what happens (-> the hara-kiri way).

The conflicts got fixed "accidentally". I was removing Epiphany components one by one just to see which of them actually threats to remove the gnome-desktop-environment metapackage.

First, I removed epiphany-browser, nothing happened. But epiphany-browser-data gave that dependency alarm. And when I got the prompt while removing it, I somewhat got nervous again since I wasn't sure what will happen if gnome-desktop-environment was removed.

Accepting that I didn't have the nerve for a broken system now, I aborted the action and re-installed epiphany-browser, which then fixed the dependency issues. And the final prompt showed there wasn't any updates to perform.
