Unfortunately based on this data, I was unable to create a testcase.

Adding two packages resulted in an unsatisfiable constraints problem,
but it explained what the problem was (that it wanted the user to
choose a provider).
I did add those testcases to apk-tools git if you would like to look at them...

Could somebody reproduce the failure with apk-tools git compiled with
debug printing enabled?

Thanks in advance!
