Bug Description

Binary package hint: xz-utils

Trying to install xz-utils gave me the following error:

package xz-utils 4.999.8beta-0ubuntu2 failed to install/upgrade: trying to overwrite '/usr/bin/lzdiff', which is also in package lzip 0:1.6~pre3-1

I guess there should be a conflict added to the dependencies, or something like that...
(lzip was installed because I had a look at it long ago, but I don't really use it, so I just removed it)
