[UPDATE 2014-03-12]: Changes that were made for Ubuntu/Debian packages may cause the warnings during the upgrade (in some cases package manager might warn you that you are doing a downgrade). It is safe to ignore the warning. You won’t have that warning in next versions. If you’re experiencing any issues during the upgrade/install process please report a bug. These changes have been done in order to improve our packaging quality.
