There is no need to re-flash!  Unfortunately, if you had a previous version of 
GPE installed, the Application Manager cannot handle the package renames.

The easiest option is to uninstall all the previous GPE packages.  This will

libcontactsdb0 libeventdb0 libgcrypt11 libgnutls11 libgpepimc0 libgpevtype0 
libgpewidget1 libhandoff0 libmimedir0 libopencdk8 libsoup2 libsqlite0 
libtododb0 libxsettings-client0
