Package: libnvidia-egl-wayland1
Version: 1:1.1.1-1
Severity: serious
Tags: patch

Dear Maintainer,

nvidia-egl-wayland-common in stable and libnvidia-egl-wayland1 in
unstable both install:



But the latter does not declare a Conflicts+Replaces on the latter, so
upgrading fails:

$ sudo apt install libnvidia-egl-wayland1=1:1.1.1-1+b1

Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

Setting the severity to delay the migration to buster. The trivial fix
is provided on Salsa:
