Bug#671715: libc6: Fail to upgrade from 2.13-27 to newer version !
I have tried that workaround but without any success :(
I get the same message :
# dpkg -i ./download/libc6_2.13-27_amd64.deb
(Reading database ... 81988 files and directories currently installed.)
Preparing to replace libc6:amd64 2.13-27 (using .../libc6_2.13-27_amd64.deb) ...
A copy of the C library was found in an unexpected directory:
It is not safe to upgrade the C library in this situation;
please remove that copy of the C library or get it out of
'/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu' and try again.
dpkg: error processing ./download/libc6_2.13-27_amd64.deb (--install):
subprocess new pre-installation script returned error exit status 1
Errors were encountered while processing:
I have tried with all versions from 2.13-20 to 2.13-27 with exactly the same result !

I've been fighting this problem for a whole day on my debian testing which also used the same libc6 library as the one
on your system.
I have tried all I could think of to resolve this, one of the operations rendering my system totally useless ... so I
did a lot of manual work to fix it.
Anyways, the long story in short:
Download the appropriate libc6 2.13.-27 library from snapshot.debian.net, in my case for 64 bit installation (amd64):
dpkg -i libc6_2.13-27_amd64.deb
Which fixes libraries and configuration files which might have gone bad probably by mixing repos (testing and unstable)
for example or from other sources ...
After that, apt-get -f install fixes the required packages and dependencies for libc6-(friends).
Let me know if you are not able to resolve the problem.
