dpkg -l | grep fpc
ii fpc 3.0.0+dfsg-2 all Free
Pascal - SDK suite dependency package
ii fpc-3.0.0 3.0.0+dfsg-2 all
Free Pascal - SDK-3.0.0 suite
ii fpc-source 3.0.0+dfsg-2 all
Free Pascal - SDK source code dependency package
ii fpc-source-3.0.0 3.0.0+dfsg-2
all Free Pascal - SDK source code
This is consistent with:
Free Pascal Compiler version 3.0.0+dfsg-2 [2016/01/28] for x86_64

sudo dpkg -i fpc_3.0.4-rc1_amd64.deb
dpkg: regarding fpc_3.0.4-rc1_amd64.deb containing fpc:
fpc conflicts with fpc
fpc-3.0.0 provides fpc and is present and installed.
dpkg: error processing archive fpc_3.0.4-rc1_amd64.deb (--install):
conflicting packages - not installing fpc
Errors were encountered while processing:
Unfortunately the gui installer did NOT produce any error messages so I
was misled into thinking that it was successful.
This gives me enough information that I can continue. I'll keep you
informed of my progress.
