    Default dist-upgrade and scapy broken

    Hi,

    I just move from BT4B to BT4Pre (yes I did a new install). I am following the instructions on how to update to the latest packages so I have done:
    apt-get update
    apt-get upgrade
    apt-get dist-upgrade

    which gave me the following messages:
    Unpacking libssh2 (from .../libssh2_1.2.2-bt0_all.deb) ...
    dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/libssh2_1.2.2-bt0_all.deb (--unpack):
    trying to overwrite `/usr/lib/libssh2.so.1', which is also in package libssh2-1

    Unpacking scapy2 (from .../scapy2_2.1-bt1_all.deb) ...
    dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/scapy2_2.1-bt1_all.deb (--unpack):
    trying to overwrite `/usr/share/man/man1/scapy.1.gz', which is also in package python-scapy
    Preparing to replace scapy 1.1.1-3 (using .../archives/scapy_2.0-bt0_all.deb) ...
    Unpacking replacement scapy ...
    Preparing to replace python-scapy 1.1.1-3 (using .../python-scapy_2.0-bt0_all.deb) ...
    Unpacking replacement python-scapy ...

    I did a quick google and found I should do
    apt-get -f install

    which fixed the libssh issue however the scapy issue remains
    The scapy messages are:

    apt-get -f install

    but it hasn't been updated in 10 days. I will be more patient.

    The problem is one we have frequently. When we decide a ubuntu package sucks or they haven't updated it in a while we create our own. This is tricky because you have to suppress the main package. Sometimes it goes smoother than others :-)

    Don't worry about it. I just figured you had a bad day. We have all been there.

    That is a problem with quite a few linux distros. They also have short support times. Intrepid is EOL in April. I really don't want to start a which distro is better flamewar but something like Centos might be a better choice in the future. Just my two cents.
