Package: adduser
Version: 3.104

While I was building a debian-live image I got this message.  As you
can see I'd built the image once before and was restarting from
somewhere in the middle causing reinstallation of ntop (probably the
same version getting installed twice).

Setting up ntop (3:3.2-10.1) ...
