Which version of nvidia-glx? I believe xserver-xorg now conflicts with
nvidia-glx less than version 7174. And the line is in fact:
Conflicts: xlibs (<< 6.8.2.dfsg.1-5), xserver-xfree86 (<< 6.8.2.dfsg.1-1), nvidia-glx (<= 1.0.7174-4)
So if you for some reason still have that old nvidia-glx version, and
you try to install it, it would make those other packages uninstall.
Maybe the package in the archive is in need of an update.
