Thanks for reporting this.

2018/03/04 15:35:20 Augmented Transaction List:
2018/03/04 15:35:20    0 install  cscope          15.8.0.1-2
2018/03/04 15:35:20    1   erase  cscope             15.8b-1

 From override.hint on the "Twente" mirror:

curr: 15.8b-1
prev: 15.8.0.1-2
replace-versions: 15.8.0.1-2

As far as understand, setup should attempt to install v15.8b1
in case v15.8.0.1-2 is installed.

Not the other way around. (currently v15.8b-1 in installed).

Yeah, this isn't working as expected. Time for a bigger hammer...

The previous version has been re-designated as 15.8a-2 (to match what
it identifies itself as with 'cscope -V').

This should make setup update to the most recent version, while still
allowing the previous version to be offered as installable...

Uhm, bigger hammer ... you mean your modification will solve the problem
for cscope, but not for f.i. the *lz4* packages?
