Thanks for keeping an eye on Piuparts and spotting this. We had
breaks+replaces only for old plugin packages and we completely
overlooked the need for breaks+replaces for the server package.

I have now fixed this in git and it will be included in next upload - soon.


PS. Where was the log? I don't see any jessie2sid option at
