It seems that our plugin packages violate Debian policy.

Specifically, we used versions in the Provides line:

If you want to get rid of the warnings, first make sure you are not 
installing any updates or performing any other package management 

Now, as root, open the file /var/lib/dpkg/status and look for a line 
that looks like this: "Provides: iscan-interpreter (= 2.1)" and delete it.

This should fix the warnings for now. We hope to fix this packaging 
problem for the next release.

Thanks to all those who reported this problem.
