Once a file with a given name has been uploaded to a given archive,
Launchpad will never let you upload a file with the same name but
different contents.

The options are:

 1) adjust the version number so that the file name is different
    (conventional in this case would be something like

 2) delete and recreate the entire archive.

Unless the archive is essentially brand new, you should probably do 1).

Incidentally, we recommend against using release names like "bionic" in
version numbers, because they aren't monotonically increasing: for
version sorting purposes, bionic < xenial.  We recommend using the
corresponding Ubuntu version numbers (16.04, 18.04, etc.) instead.
