Seeing that APT::Install-Suggests "false"; is the default to begin with,
it might be more prudent to simply remove 05disable-suggests from the
package.

As a matter of fact, I don't think this package is needed anymore now
that Jessie has been released.  FWIW, I've purged it with no ill effects
(so far ;-).

Package: devuan-baseconf
Version: all

There is a syntax error in /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/05disable-suggests :

# cat /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/05disable-suggests
APT:Install-Suggests "0";

Apt is not complaining about it but quoting 'man apt.conf':

>> [...] Option specification is given with a double colon 
notation; for instance APT::Get::Assume-Yes is an option within the 
APT tool group, for the Get tool. [...]

So the line sould be:

APT::Install-Suggests "0";


Moreover, "0" is the default value, so disabling 05disable-suggests:

# apt-config dump | grep -i -e 'sugg' -e 'recomm'
APT::Install-Recommends "1";
APT::Install-Suggests "0";
