Ticket #11216 (closed defect: wontfix)
Ubuntu package does not install cleanly when upgrading
|Reported by:||dbr||Owned by:|
When installing the 4.2.4 package on precise while the ubuntu package of virtualbox 4.1.12 is present, the installation fails with:
dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/virtualbox-4.2_4.2.4-81684~Ubuntu~precise_amd64.deb (--unpack):
trying to overwrite '/usr/share/virtualbox/VBoxGuestAdditions.iso', which is also in package virtualbox-guest-additions-iso 4.1.12-1
I believe your package should conflict with virtualbox-guest-additions-iso in the same way as it already conflicts with "virtualbox".
