You might want to take a look at Synaptic package manager. It will warn you of 
the duplicate packages when you run it. It presents a nice graphical 
interface that lets you quickly see the packages, select the old ones, and 
remove. It will be still be tedious given what you say a couple of posts 
later, but, perhaps less so than the command line method.
