libavcodec-ffmpeg56 intentionally conflicts with libavcodec-ffmpeg-extra56.
I'm not sure what you did, but according to DpkgHistoryLog.txt it involves aptdaemon, which seems to not handle conflicts correctly.
But since this is definitely not a bug in libavcodec-ffmpeg56, I'm reassigning this report to aptdaemon now.

affects: ffmpeg (Ubuntu) → aptdaemon (Ubuntu)
