Bug#984477: libbio-variation-perl: missing Breaks+Replaces: bioperl (<< 1.7.3)

Package: libbio-variation-perl
Version: 1.7.5-1
Severity: serious
User: debian-qa@lists.debian.org
Usertags: piuparts


during a test with piuparts I noticed your package fails to upgrade from
It installed fine in 'buster', then the upgrade to 'bullseye' fails
because it tries to overwrite other packages files without declaring a
Breaks+Replaces relation.

See policy 7.6 at

>From the attached log (scroll to the bottom...):

  Selecting previously unselected package libbio-variation-perl.
  Preparing to unpack .../048-libbio-variation-perl_1.7.5-1_all.deb ...
  Unpacking libbio-variation-perl (1.7.5-1) ...
  dpkg: error processing archive /tmp/apt-dpkg-install-eyjeT8/048-libbio-variation-perl_1.7.5-1_all.deb (--unpack):
   trying to overwrite '/usr/bin/bp_flanks', which is also in package bioperl 1.7.2-3
  dpkg-deb: error: paste subprocess was killed by signal (Broken pipe)

IIRC bioperl 1.7.3 is the version that got split up into several packages,
therefore the existing
  Breaks+Replaces: libbio-perl-perl (<= 1.7.2)
are also insufficiently versioned (should be (<< 1.7.3) as well).
