Bug Description

Upgrading fails with this error:

Looks like files have moved between icedtea-next-common and icedtea-netx without the required Replaces.

icedtea-web (1.1.4-1ubuntu2) precise; urgency=low

  * Tighten version for `replaces' attribute. The version needs updates when
    packages are backported to earlier releases. LP: #891720.
