LP:1047337 - Ubuntu mariadb-client-5.5.27 upgrade leaves MariaDB unstartable if mytop package installed

      This bug blocks installation/upgrade of latest MariaDB packages if mariadb-test is requested.

      This means if package mytop is installed and mariadb-test is installed, an upgrade completely
      breaks MariaDB upgrade so files are partially installed and database will not start.

      The quick fix is to issue 'dpkg --purge mytop' at the command line, then go through the
      install/upgrade procedure again.

      See log below for details.

      dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/mariadb-client-5.5_5.5.27-mariadb1~precise_amd64.deb (--unpack):
      trying to overwrite '/usr/bin/mytop', which is also in package mytop 1.6-6

      This error is thrown when the mytop package has already been installed.

      Suggest adding conflict resolution to MariaDB packaging which tests for the existence of /usr/bin/mytop
      and if it exists execute 'dpkg -S /usr/bin/mytop' to determine the package owning /usr/bin/mytop, then
      direct the user to manually deinstall this package (dpkg --purge mytop) before proceeding.
