Acroread Update Error

Hi all.
I'm having an issue updating the package acroread.  All other updates this
week have functioned fine but when it comes to acroread I get the following

An error occurred

The following details are provided:

E: /var/cache/apt/archives/acroread_9.1.0-7intrepid1_i386.deb: trying to
overwrite `/usr/share/man/man1/acroread.1.gz', which is also in package

I've changed the permissions on the file '/usr/share/man/man1/acroread.1.gz'
and I still get the above error.  I've renamed the file and I still get the
above error, which I think is weird as there is no file to overwrite.

I'm using intrepid on an Asus Eee PC 701SD and attempting to upgrade through
the package manager's GUI.

Any ideas?
