      I'm trying to install the stable release of the v2.0 branch according to http://docs.mongodb.org/manual/tutorial/install-mongodb-on-ubuntu/, and ran into the following error at the Install Packages step:

      $ sudo apt-get install mongodb20-10gen

      The following NEW packages will be installed:

      After this operation, 85.7 MB of additional disk space will be used.

      Unpacking mongodb20-10gen (from .../mongodb20-10gen_2.0.7_i386.deb) ...
      dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/mongodb20-10gen_2.0.7_i386.deb (--unpack):
      trying to overwrite '/usr/bin/mongoimport', which is also in package mongodb-clients 1:2.0.4-1ubuntu2
      E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

      I got it to install after removing mongodb-clients. Thought I should report this in case there's a way to automate the upgrade, of if the docs can be updated.
