Bug Description

Description: Ubuntu 18.04.3 LTS
Release: 18.04

  Installed: 1.6.12
  Candidate: 1.6.12
  Version table:
 *** 1.6.12 500
        500 http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu bionic-updates/main amd64 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
     1.6.6ubuntu0.1 500
        500 http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu bionic-security/main amd64 Packages
     1.6.1 500
        500 http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu bionic/main amd64 Packages

Expected Results:
apt should have installed gcc first and then gcc-guile, instead of reporting package inconsistency because installing gcc via apt and then guile had no issues for me.

Actual Results:
apt reports a package error and that packages may be broken.
