  • Commands like dpkg -i for .deb's and rpm -i for .rmp's.

If packages structure changed, you should uninstall all previous packages yourself before install new version. For example structure changed from 1.5.1 version. If you install packages using script provided with CGRU archive, you should uninstall previous packages using script from than previous packages archive, not from new one.

If you make such mistake, you always can remove all CGRU packages by hands. See commands in uninstall script from any version and use them to remove old 'hanging' package, which does not exist in the new version.
