Bug#47253: dpkg: update-alternative can't rename across filesystem

Package: dpkg
Severity: normal


While upgrading perl dpkg failed :

update-alternatives: unable to rename /usr/man/man1/perldoc.1p.gz to /usr/share/man/man1/perldoc.1p.gz: Invalid cross-device link
dpkg: error processing perl-5.005 (--configure):
 subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 2

Removing /usr/man/man1/perldoc.1p.gz (and others) solve the problem.

My /usr /man and /usr/share are on sepaate filesystems...
