I had a problem upgrading from the beta KDE 3.2 Debian to the stable 3.2.1. Getting error messges like:
dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/kdelibs-bin_4%3a3.2.1-1_i386.deb (--unpack): trying to overwrite `/etc/menu-methods/freedesktop-desktop-entry-spec-apps', which is also in package kicker dpkg-deb: subprocess paste killed by signal (Broken pipe) Errors were encountered while processing: /var/cache/apt/archives/kdelibs-bin_4%3a3.2.1-1_i386.deb E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
To solve this I switched to the directory were apt-get put's it's downloads (/var/cache/apt/archives). Then executed the following command on the package(s) that were having problems: "dpkg --force-all -i [package]". Then: "dpkg -f install". That cleared it right up.
