I did a little bit more research and found out that the warning was not
replicating on stretch hosts managed elsewhere. This led me to find that
the warning was *not* caused by aptitude itself but rather by an option
in apt.conf.d/ that was configured by our configuration management (e.g.
it was configuring "APT::Get::force-yes true;"

I've removed this from the configuration that is being pushed by our
configuration management and the warning is gone.

So.... I'm really sorry for creating noise here and not having
investigated a bit more! I thought that since I could replicate on more
than one host it was a problem with the software but it was rather a
configuration problem.

This bug report can be closed (sorry don't know the magic email line
that does this)
