Use this:

Replaces: powstatd-crypt (<< 1.5.1-2)
Conflicts: powstatd-crypt (<< 1.5.1-2), ups-monitor
Provides: powstatd-crypt

That way, the conflicts+replaces are the same, and provides is there, and
apt should be able to tell automatically that powstatd-crypt is to be
upgraded to powstatd.

And if not, with versioned confs+reps a dummy package would work, too.
