3. Upgrade

ACTUAL RESULT:

 libpostproc52:amd64 6:0.git20120821-4 (Multi-Arch: no) is not co-installable with libpostproc52 which has multiple installed instances

== Original Report ==

Thanks for your report.

This is because the upgrader decides to replace libpostproc52:i386 by libpostproc52:amd64 and fails because they are not co-installable and dpkg thinks i386 is still installed while it has been removed earlier.
