You could try apt-get dist-upgrade to see if the package will be replaced.........or.......dpkg -r libc6 to remove

Is the libc6 from ubuntu causing any problems? Actually, is there a difference? Why not just leave it alone? Ubuntu is often just Testing. If there is a big issue, you could point your sources to Testing and do a dist-upgrade. Personally, I'd be tempted to simply leave well enough alone.
