OK. The problem seems to be with libpng-dev. I see that
the package libpng-dev conflicts with itself! Is that possibly
Shouldn't the conflicts and depends be as follows?
libpng-dev conflicts with libpng2-dev and provides libpng2-dev
libpng2-dev conflicts with libpng-dev and provides libpng-dev
If that is the way it should be, then we ought to file a bug
against lib libpng-dev for having a typo in its "conflicts"
field? (It lists a conflict with libpng-dev where it should
list a conflict with libpng2-dev.)
Will Ivan or some other guru please comment so a bug can be
filed to alert Phillipe Troin (maintainer of libpng-dev) of this
Or is the problem more complicated than that?
