[SOLVED] Updating a package with renamed dependency using yaourt

I am trying to update  aur/python2-epd-oss using yaourt. The problem is that the installed version depends on biopython and the new one depends on python2-biopython. When yaourt tries to replace  biopython with python2-biopython I get this:

:: python2-biopython and biopython are in conflict. Remove biopython? [y/N] y
error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
:: python2-epd-oss: requires biopython>=1.57

and I never reach te point where aur/python2-epd-oss gets updated.

How should I update  aur/python2-epd-oss? Is this a case to force the update?

pacman -R python2-epd-oss
yaourt -Syua  # and answer yes
yaourt -S python2-epd-oss

This isn't really yaourt specific, you'd need to do something like this whenever AUR dependencies change names.

Yaourt advertises that it manages dependencies ... but it doesn't really.
