Looks vaguely like you've got both i386 and amd64 versions of libnss3 installed and only tried to upgrade the amd64 version for a security update...

I simply renamed the offending debian.gz file to debian.gzx via root
actions in Dolphin and then fixed broken packages in synaptic.

Status changed to 'Confirmed' because the bug affects multiple users.

Changed in nss (Ubuntu):
status: New → Confirmed

I duped a few more bugs onto this one - the reason usually really is only updating one of the two architectures wich then have colliding content
.
I wonder thou why this sort of issue should pile up especially on libnss3?

Is there any dependency or install guide out there which makes this particularly prone to have 32/64 bit installed at the same time?
