Hmm. So this is most likely a bug in dpkg-mounted then.

As far as I can see apt doesn't conflict with any libc6 versions, so I
wonder where that conflict originated. I'll do some digging around to
see if I can find the problem.

A good workaround is probably to use the apt method instead, it should
be able to handle mounted filesystems as well and it is much better at
resolving conflicts.
