Bug Description

No need to fix in Quantal since there's no upgrade path from Lucid to Quantal that isn't through Precise.


 * Possible upgrade failures for people not using update-manager (update-manager will force-overwrite to bull it's way through this issue, but it's better to correct it).


 * Since package order isn't deterministic, this won't happen with every upgrade. The best way to test it is inspect the package metadata and verify that the new libksane-data conflicts/replaces libksane0 << 4:4.6.80.

[Regression Potential]

 * None.

[Other Info]

 * Should be landed as part of the update to 4.8.5.
