manifest claims two packages are both installed that conflict

Bug Description

Investigating LP: #2036199, found that lists grub-pc + grub-efi-amd64. This wasn't surprising as Julian has mentioned work happening in Debian to make these packages co-installable. But that work hasn't landed yet, the packages still conflict.

Yet both are listed in the manifest for the squashfs, which shouldn't be possible.

$ sudo mount /tmp/ubuntu-unity-mantic-desktop-amd64.iso /mnt/
$ sudo mount /mnt/casper/filesystem.squashfs /mnt/
$ sudo chroot /mnt dpkg -l | grep grub-pc
rc grub-pc 2.12~rc1-4ubuntu3 amd64 GRand Unified Bootloader, version 2 (PC/BIOS version)
ii grub-pc-bin 2.12~rc1-4ubuntu3 amd64 GRand Unified Bootloader, version 2 (PC/BIOS modules)

The fact that grub-pc was removed is a bug. The fact that a package is in removed but not purged state in the image is ALSO a bug. We should probably just assert whenever this is the case and fail the build.

The bit that was confusing to me about this is that dpkg-query --show includes removed but not purged files.
