Same as for 3.0.0 and 3.0.2:

What do you get when doing "dpkg -l | grep fpc"?

I got the opposite on a fresh Linux Mint 18: When using the command line directly there was
no error. When using the graphical installer the installation showed a
conflict error, but the package was installed successfully. 

dpkg -i fpc_3.0.4-rc1_amd64.deb

Probably the old 3.0.2 packages bite the new.
