[Bug 634637] Re: [maverick] shiki-colors upgrade failed using update-manager

If a package is deleted, it won't deleted from the user's machine. The
user will see (in Synaptic) that the package show up in the "Installed
(local or obsolete)" group and can remove it manually.

The problem will persist until he removes arc-colors manually or
(better) we fix shiki-colors.

It's unnecessary, but if you want to test it, you need to install
version 2.7-1ubuntu2. An upgrade from karmic wouldn't trigger this

@Andrew: Do we want to move the wallpapers from arc-colors to shiki-
colors in Debian too?

Bug description:
I updated my computer today using update-manager. I was not offered nor did I do the "distro upgrade" or whatever that option is that increases the possibility of breaking things in development versions of Ubuntu. I was also obstinate enough to have installed arc-colors, gnome-colors, and shiki-colors and I had not removed arc-colors when it was removed from the repositories. As the upgrade finished, I got an error that something didn't work right. The log indicates that it was the issue with arc-colors and gnome-colors conflicting.

This version of gnome-colors should have removed the previous arc-colors before trying to installing the arc wallpapers. I believe this was intended as the fix for bug 564769 but it didn't work for me in update-manager.

I am attaching the terminal log; it's got a bunch of other packages in the list that were also upgraded at the same time.
