Package conflicts: k3b <-> neptune-settings-plasma5-profile

Package conflicts: k3b <-> neptune-settings-plasma5-profile

I had issues, when trying to install k3b. The packages neptune-settings-plasma5-profile and k3b (to be precise, the dependent package k3b-data) raise conflicts:
dpkg: error processing archive /var/cache/apt/archives/neptune-settings-plasma5-profile_2.16_all.deb (--unpack):
trying to overwrite '/usr/share/solid/actions/k3b_create_data_project_from_blank_medium.desktop', which is also in package k3b-data 18.08.1-1

To solve this issue, I've removed the k3b plasma files from neptune-settings-plasma5-profile_2.16_all.deb packages and re-installed it:
cp -a /var/cache/apt/archives/neptune-settings-plasma5-profile_2.16_all.deb /tmp/
mkdir /tmp/neptune-settings-plasma5_no-k3b-icons
dpkg-deb -R /tmp/neptune-settings-plasma5-profile_2.16_all.deb /tmp/neptune-settings-plasma5_no-k3b-icons
rm /tmp/neptune-settings-plasma5_no-k3b-icons/usr/share/solid/actions/k3b_*
dpkg-deb -b /tmp/neptune-settings-plasma5_no-k3b-icons /tmp/neptune-settings-plasma5_no-k3b-icons.deb
apt-get install /tmp/neptune-settings-plasma5_no-k3b-icons.deb

This issue was observed for version 2.15 and 2.16 of neptune-settings-plasma5-profile:
  • neptune-settings-plasma5-profile_2.15_all.deb
  • neptune-settings-plasma5-profile_2.16_all.deb

Background: I've upgraded a pretty fresh NeptuneOS 5.6 installation to v6 Beta. I do not know if the issue exists also for a fresh v6 Beta installation.

Cheers, J├╝rgen

Yes this is an issue with the upgrade from 5.x to 6.
The k3b package now ships with the necessary file.
