When updating the mirrorbrain packages on Ubuntu or Debian systems, the upgrade does not
complete upon the first attempt. The problem is that the file /usr/bin/mb has been moved to a
different subpackage, and apt-get doesn't want to overwrite it:

Unpacking replacement python-mb ...
dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/python-mb_2.13.0-3_amd64.deb (--unpack):
trying to overwrite `/usr/bin/mb', which is also in package mirrorbrain-tools
Preparing to replace mirrorbrain-tools 2.12.0-2 (using .../mirrorbrain-tools_2.13.0-
3_amd64.deb) ...
Unpacking replacement mirrorbrain-tools ...
Processing triggers for python-support ...
Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

To complete the update, it is necessary to run 'apt-get upgrade' a second time.

This may be a packaging error; I'm not sure how to solve it right now.

(Naturally, this is only an issue when upgrading from the previous version
