Bug Description

Binary package hint: language-pack-as

The auto upgrade tester found the following problem:

Preparing to replace language-pack-as 1:10.10+20101123 (using .../language-pack-as_1%3a11.04+20110324_all.deb) ...

Unpacking replacement language-pack-as-base ...
dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/language-pack-as-base_1%3a11.04+20110324_all.deb (--unpack):
 trying to overwrite '/usr/share/locale-langpack/as/LC_MESSAGES/PackageKit.mo', which is also in package language-pack-kde-as 1:10.10+20101123

Looks like a missing replaces or a issue with the files being in the same pkg.

This appears to be a problem for most langpacks.
