QGIS Debian upgrade throws an error

Applied a series of QGIS updates which became available today.
An error was thrown to the effect that libqgis_customwidgets2.6.1 could not be installed because it would overwrite libqgis_customwidgets.so which was also provided by libqgis_customwidgets2.6.0. apt-get autoremove would have removed libqgis_customwidgets2.6.0 but failed because of the outstanding problem with libqgis_customwidgets2.6.1 and suggested apt-get -f install which failed with the original error.
Eventually removed all of QGIS & reinstalled from scratch as a workaround.
Note also that the Affected version drop-down on Tracker only goes up to 2.6.0.
Finally, note that the upgrade fixed annoyingly erratic scrolling of raster map - many thanks to whoever did that ;)

Another workaround to avoid complete uninstall/reinstall:
sudo aptitude purge libqgis-customwidgets2.6.0
- apply solution
sudo aptitude install python-qgis
This workaround was provided by Samy on the qgis-user-gis list: http://lists.osgeo.org/pipermail/qgis-user/2014-November/030063.html
