Error trying to update transcode package

Hi all:

First off, let me say thanks to all of you here who work so hard to
help us newbies. It's very appreciated behind this keyboard.

Now to my problem. I'm running KnoppMyth R5A22 (Debian,
customized kernel.) I couldn't run the nuv2disc program properly.
Reading the documentation, I figured out that I have out-of-date
versions of transcode and libdvdread installed. So I tried to
upgrade both. libdvdread upgraded successfully, but when I tried to
upgrade transcode, I got:

root@box:/usr/src# dpkg -i transcode-0.6.12_0.6.12-1_i386.deb
Selecting previously deselected package transcode-0.6.12.
(Reading database ... 62243 files and directories currently 
Unpacking transcode-0.6.12 (from 
transcode-0.6.12_0.6.12-1_i386.deb) ...
dpkg: error processing transcode-0.6.12_0.6.12-1_i386.deb 
 trying to overwrite `/usr/local/bin/avifix', which is also in 
package transcode
dpkg-deb: subprocess paste killed by signal (Broken pipe)
Errors were encountered while processing:

Can anyone help this newbie to get the package installed
without breaking other programs?

It doesn't automatically detect that there is an old version of the program (bug) and then discovers that there is a file that belongs to the old transcode , so I would say....
remove the old transcode
apt-get remove transcode
and retry
