Breaks is a less strong requirement than Conflicts and is the
correct choice in this case. Quoting policy 7.3:
Many of the cases where Breaks should be used were previously handled
with Conflicts because Breaks did not yet exist. Many Conflicts fields
should now be Breaks. See Conflicting binary packages - Conflicts,
Section 7.4 for more information about the differences.
