I fail to find out the right syntax for the version string. The current
version in unstable is 0.7.4+ds-1, though in amd64 it is 0.7.4+ds-1+b1
(I don't know where that +b1 comes from). Is there a way of specifying
the version without having to add the +b1, so that there is one 'Breaks'
that works for all architectures?
Even better would be if it was possible to only specify the upstream
version, because even if there was a debian revision -2 in the future,
it would still be broken...
I tried multiple times, but dpkg only fails to install the new
libusbguard0 if I specify the whole version string:
Breaks: usbguard-applet-qt (<= 0.7.4+ds-1+b1)
