I can't reproduce this error at all. I had no issues upgrading from
wesnoth-1.13 1.13.2-1 to 1.13.4-1 on my own system, with wesnoth-1.12
installed at the same time. I also can't reproduce this in a clean
pbuilder chroot, i.e.:

# pbuilder --create --distribution sid --mirror http://ftp.ca.debian.org/debian
# pbuilder login
# apt-get install wesnoth-1.12
# echo "deb http://snapshot.debian.org/archive/debian/20160331T221016Z/
experimental main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/exp.list
# apt-get -o Acquire::Check-Valid-Until=false update
# apt-get install wesnoth-1.13 # installs 1.13.2-1 from snapshot.d.o
# echo "deb http://ftp.ca.debian.org/debian experimental main" >
/etc/apt/sources.list.d/exp.list
# apt-get update
# apt-get dist-upgrade # installs 1.13.4-1 successfully

And piuparts doesn't report any installation errors either [1],
although I suppose the piuparts.d.o reports don't mean much since it's
just testing clean installs of 1.13.4-1, not upgrades from 1.13.2-1 to
1.13.4-1.

I didn't change anything in any of the maintscripts when I updated the
packaging for wesnoth-1.13 1.13.4-1, so I'm frankly stumped as to why
you're seeing this error. Rhonda, any ideas?

Regards,
Vincent
