First, better avoid using sudo if it isn't needed. The relevant 
directories for your search are all word readable.

Second, the syntax of your command is wrong. Use this instead:

find / -name libtotem-plparse\*

You will probably find the files in /usr/lib.

I think the update conflicts with other packages which can't be used with 
the new version but only with the installed version.

I would update the other packages. Probably there will be a fix for the 
problematic package within a few days. Maybe you should file a bug at
