Hmm. That man page was in the wrong subpackage in .30, I moved it in .31 to be with the associated binary. Don't know how to fix it but will investigate.

To be specific, the i2prouter-nowrapper manpages moved from the i2p package to the i2p-router package, because that's where the binary is.

The reports on IRC seem to indicate that retrying the update works the second time. Perhaps because the first time, the files are removed from i2p, and the second time, the files get installed from i2p-router. If so, the problem fixes itself, no need for -f ? Not sure…

Would like to hear from mhatta whether this can be closed, since it fixes itself, or if there's more to do.

This is caused because i2p 0.9.30p-2~trusty+1 and i2p-router 0.9.31p-2~trusty+1 can't co-exist. I guess it can be solved with adding both i2p and i2p-router Breaks << 0.9.31.
