Bug#368473: tasksel: upgrade from 2.44 to 2.45 broken
tasksel upgrade from 2.44 isn't working due to the tasksel-data addition.
tasksel 2.44 contains '/usr/share/tasksel/debian-tasks.desc' and all the
others but tasksel 2.45 doesn't, it's tasksel-data 2.45 that is trying to
add the same updated files there, so the broken state output below:
Unpacking tasksel-data (from .../tasksel-data_2.45_all.deb) ...
dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/tasksel-data_2.45_all.deb (--unpack):
trying to overwrite `/usr/share/tasksel/debian-tasks.desc', which is also in package tasksel
dpkg-deb: subprocess paste killed by signal (Broken pipe)
Preparing to replace tasksel 2.44 (using .../archives/tasksel_2.45_all.deb) ...
Unpacking replacement tasksel ...
Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
The workaround is purge tasksel 2.44 and install tasksel 2.45, but i would
recommend review the upgrade path here. :)
