Greetings All,

Another way to fix it is running synaptic. Update the list and it will
pop up a requester showing all the duplicated packages. Then just search
for those packages and remove the old versions.

YMMV, depending on the number of duplicates. It's not elegant but it
saves time rebuilding the rpm database.
