Bug Description

According to Charlie (comments in https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/xubuntu-meta/+bug/588609),
"If more than one desktop meta-package is installed when attempting to upgrade using 'updte-manager', the upgrade will fail."

If this is correct, I propose that via dependencies , installing a desktop metapackage should uninstall all other desktop metapackages.

But maybe someone can find a different way to solve this bug ?
