Hm... i would say you have damaged /var/lib/dpkg/status, because there is
only 3 packages in debian which depend on aptitude and nothing depends
on them. And aptitude normally doesnt destroy anything unless you ask it
really-really hard, so this hints to it too.

On slow links yes, sshfs is strictly superior to nfs, but on 1Gbit and
faster links cpu usage becomes a factor, especially on server side. Sshfs
would kill a typical nas-grade cpu on 1Gb.
