Bug Description

Upgrading python3-cinderclient from 1:4.1.0-0ubuntu1 to 2:4.2.1-0ubuntu2 fails on Eoan due to a conflicting file between the two packages.

It seems there is no equivalent 4.2 upgrade for python-cinderclient so anyone who previously had both versions installed now meet the conflict.
