Bug#960688: fwupd: missing Breaks: fwupdate (<< 12-7)

Nothing forces the transitional fwupdate to be installed, thus the
package relationships allow some kind of partial upgrade: the
combination of fwupdate/buster and fwupd/bullseye to be installed at the
same time, which creates the mess. The Breaks will fix this - either
fwupdate from buster gets removed or upgraded to the transitional
package in bullseye if fwupd from bullseye is being installed.


PS: Yes, I am searching for corner cases where things may go wrong.
