I was able to make the package Install by removing the following files:

* /boot/config-3.13.0-24-generic
* /boot/
* /boot/vmlinuz-3.13.0-24-generic
* /boot/abi-3.13.0-24-generic

And then apt-get upgrade -f

This way the package doesn't try to backup the files and the installation works fine. But this is only a workaround, not a fix. However I can't provide any further information about this bug because after having installed the new kernel, the initramfs doesn't seem to setup my encrypted root filesystem anymore and the boot fails, so I decided to give up and install Ubuntu again from scratch ( or not at all as I was just testing it out. A selfdestroying LTS release isn't exactly something that I need ).
