apt trouble

Kdebluetooth installed fine in the past. When I do a apt-get install kdebluetooth now I get:

Uitpakken van kdebluetooth (uit .../kdebluetooth_0.0.cvs20040502-1_i386.deb) ...
Leaving `diversion of /usr/bin/kdesktop_lock to /usr/bin/kdesktop_lock_nobt by kdebluetooth'
ln: `/usr/bin/kdesktop_lock': Bestand bestaat
dpkg: fout bij afhandelen van /var/cache/apt/archives/kdebluetooth_0.0.cvs20040502-1_i386.deb (--unpack):
subproces pre-installation script gaf een foutwaarde 1 terug
Fouten gevonden tijdens behandelen van:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

In short (It in dutch) it comes down to a returning error code 1 on installing the packages. All other packages install fine. Forcing doesn work either. I hav eno clue on how to fix this. Any pointers?

Thanx for the help but it didn work I'm afraid. The same error keeps coming back. It really weird, it's the only packages that gives me this trouble and I'm sure the packages is fine since a lot of people use it. I not sure when the trouble started though, no clue what to do next either.

Then it looks like a bug in that package called kdebluetooth.. it is not an official debian package is it?
Should it work with the debian release you have installed? (testing, unstable, stable ?).
Basically what it seems to want to do is overwrite the file kdesktop_lock with a symlink to kdesktop_lock_nobt.. but kdesktop_lock - at least on my machine - is owned by the "kdesktop" package.
Are you sure that that package should work with your version of kde?
Maybe you can paste your sources.list here.

Does anyone know more about this issue and kdebluetooth?
Is this a bug in that package?
