Anyway, the way you upgraded is preferred if some other packages depend on the one you want to upgrade.

Yes, this is the case, a lot of packages depend on that.

The suffix is a problem, as the original XYZ no longer exists and a lot of scrips check for XYZ

The scripts are not owned by us.

Anyway, thanks for the help.
