Need help package ownership problem
I am unable to apt-get dist-upgrade because logtail and logcheck are
fighting over the same file. The package owner suggested using
dpkg-divert --package logtail --add --rename /usr/share/man/man8/logtail.8.gz
but as you can see below, it gets removed before it can help. Can
anyone suggest how to proceed?

I am basically running testing, but installed logtail 220.127.116.11 from unstable
because of similar ownership issues.
