[SOLVED] Error upgrading crunchbang-configs from 0.0.2 to 0.0.4

I'll start off by saying this is almost definitely my fault. I'm still trying to get the hang of setting up my sources.list file correctly. That being said, I get the following error when trying to upgrade:

ioos@crunchy:~$ sudo apt-get upgrade
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
The following packages will be upgraded:
  crunchbang-configs
1 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.

After this operation, 41.0 kB of additional disk space will be used.
Do you want to continue [Y/n]? 
(Reading database ... 148501 files and directories currently installed.)
Preparing to replace crunchbang-configs 0.0.2 (using .../crunchbang-configs_0.0.4_all.deb) ...
Unpacking replacement crunchbang-configs ...
dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/crunchbang-configs_0.0.4_all.deb (--unpack):
 trying to overwrite '/etc/skel/.profile', which is also in package bash 4.1-3

                                      Errors were encountered while processing:
 /var/cache/apt/archives/crunchbang-configs_0.0.4_all.deb
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

It looks like both crunchbang-configs and bash need the file /etc/skel/.profile, right? But I'm not really sure how to resolve it...

Thanks!

Make a backup of "/etc/skel/.profile", then remove it and try upgrading again.

Oops, sorry, this was my fault. I have updated the package and removed the '.profile' file. The 0.0.5 package should now install okay. Thank you for reporting this. smile
