Package: libcolamd-3.2.0
Version: 3.2.0-2
Severity: grave
Justification: fails to upgrade


  While upgrading lp-solve, insallation of libcolamd-3.2.0 fails
because it tries to overwrite files already present on the system:

Unpacking libcolamd-3.2.0 (from .../libcolamd-3.2.0_1%3a3.2.0-2_amd64.deb) ...
dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/libcolamd-3.2.0_1%3a3.2.0-2_amd64.deb (--unpack):
 trying to overwrite `/usr/lib/libcolamd.so.3.2.0', which is also in package libsuitesparse-3.2.0

  libcolamd-3.2.0 should

Replaces: libsuitesparse-3.2.0 (<= 3.2.0-1)
Conflicts: libsuitesparse-3.2.0 (<= 3.2.0-1)

  (I'm not sure the conflict stanza is necessary).
