Summary0002501: snmp fails to install on kali upgrade from 1.x

In attempting to install from a kali 1.1 install resident on an aws instance (originally used the ami image for 1.0.6), upgrade fails at:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
snmp : Depends: libsnmp15 (>= 5.4.3~dfsg) but it is not installable

You need to upgrade snmpcheck to version 1.8-1kali4 to resolve this issue.

I have uploaded net-snmp_5.7.2.1+dfsg-1kali1.dsc which will have the required "Conflicts" directive to force the upgrade of snmpcheck prior to the one of snmp.

Try "apt-get install -f snmpcheck" in the mean time (or a manual install of the newer snmpcheck).
