apt-get dist-upgrade error


I ran apt-get dist-upgrade and downloaded 378MB of packages. But when it tried installing them, it reported a conflict error:
Quote:
Fetched 378MB in 2h9m41s (48.6kB/s)
Committing changes...
Preparing... ########################################### [100%]
file /usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.so.1.2 from install of XFree86-4.4.0-9 conflicts with file from package fglrx-4.3.0-3.14.1
E: Error while running transaction
So my questions are, 1) How do I fix this, and 2) I tried running the command again and it wanted to re-download all 378MB. How can I get it to install what it already downloaded? And what directory are these packages in, anyway?

When you reran the command it said it needed 378MB but it most likely said it was going to fetch 0MB. I've seen this serveral times. Just rerun the command.

The files are kept in /var/cache/apt/archives/

You're right; running the command simply started the install process. Thanks. But I still don't know how to fix the error. I tried "apt-get remove fglrx-4.3.0-3.14.1" but it said it couldn't find the package.
