Bug Description

From DpkgTerminalLog.txt:
dpkg: error processing archive /var/cache/apt/archives/libqwt5-qt4-dev_5.2.3-1_amd64.deb (--unpack):
 trying to overwrite '/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/qt4/plugins/designer/libqwt_designer_plugin.so', which is also in package libqwt6 6.1.1-0ubuntu1

The bug is that the file '/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/qt4/plugins/designer/libqwt_designer_plugin.so' exists in both of these packages. Attempting to have both installed leads to a conflict.

A DVB-T usb device was plugged in at the time.
