    Exclamation UPGRADE BUG: package conflicts...

    There seem to be consistently conflicts between packages part of the Kali RasPi distribution:

    Code:

    You might want to run 'apt --fix-broken install' to correct these.
    The following packages have unmet dependencies:
     kali-linux-everything : Depends: poshc2 but it is not installed
    E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt --fix-broken install' with no packages (or specify a solution).

    The following package was automatically installed and is no longer required:
      libnode83
    Use 'apt autoremove' to remove it.
    The following additional packages will be installed:
      poshc2
    Recommended packages:
      powershell
    The following NEW packages will be installed:
      poshc2
    0 upgraded, 1 newly installed, 0 to remove and 1 not upgraded.
    302 not fully installed or removed.
    Need to get 0 B/10,1 MB of archives.
    After this operation, 38,5 MB of additional disk space will be used.
    Do you want to continue? [Y/n] 
    (Reading database ... 1027238 files and directories currently installed.)
    Preparing to unpack .../poshc2_7.4.0-0kali1_all.deb ...
    Unpacking poshc2 (7.4.0-0kali1) ...
    dpkg: error processing archive /var/cache/apt/archives/poshc2_7.4.0-0kali1_all.deb (--unpack):

    needrestart is being skipped since dpkg has failed
    E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
    The first I could "fix" by issuing

    Code:
    dpkg -i --force-all /var/cache/apt/archives/raspi-firmware_1.20220331+ds-2_all.deb
    dpkg -i --force-all /var/cache/apt/archives/kalipi-re4son-firmware_5.10.103-20220504_arm64.deb
    The second by de- and then re-installing the kali-everything meta package.

    These seem to be rather crude methods to solve what seem to be fundamental conflicts which can only be resolved by somehow installing things in the "proper' order and some thinking.

    But, really, packages shouldn't install the same or same named files, especially not if they are part of the same distribution/repo, and not some conflict with some unsupported third party repo...

    Am I the only one with such issues? I feel like I'm conducting a monologue here...

    packages often overwrite previous versions because lots of Linux users have symlinks set up that would otherwise break after updates if they were named differently
