Package: libgl1-nvidia-legacy-304xx-glx
Version: 304.108-2
Severity: grave
Justification: renders package unusable

Dear Maintainer,

I can't update libgl1-nvidia-legacy-304xx-glx from 304.108-1 to 304.108-2, because
apt-get complains about overwriting a file belonging to the older version:

So now I'm stuck, unfortunately.
