You just missed the "everyone needs to update now sice we will break
the upgrade path soon" mails a while back.

The /lib64 and /usr/lib64 links have been moved from base-files to
libc6 and the required hints for a smooth upgrade were only added
temporarily. You have to use --force-overwrite now.


PS: going from gcc-3.4 back to pure64 can cause more problems
