[Pdns-users] Upgrading from 2.8 to 2.9.6-static

I am trying to update my pdns 2.8 to the new 2.9.6-static. I'm running
the mysql-backend under debian linux.

Normally I just download the .deb and install it, like this:

# dpkg -i pdns-static_2.9.6-1_i386.deb
(Reading database ... 12924 files and directories currently installed.)
Unpacking pdns-static (from pdns-static_2.9.6-1_i386.deb) ...
dpkg: error processing pdns-static_2.9.6-1_i386.deb (--install):
 trying to overwrite `/usr/sbin/pdns_server', which is also in package
Errors were encountered while processing:
dpkg-deb: subprocess paste killed by signal (Broken pipe)

What should I do next to get this to work? Must I use apt-get instead,
or maybe even manually un-install the old pdns?
