If you have issues with installing it, remove the current Chromium first, then install. I think they have changed the location to /etc/Chromium which for whatever reasons caused issues with the previous chromium installation, so remove it first.
Also, users running gnome, may have to uninstall chrome-gnome-shell and then reinstall it after you install chromium. I think there are some critical bugs with chrome-gnome-shell also ...maintainer needs to update.

I've tried that, but it won't reinstall.

That is odd. I got those same errors at first. Make sure you uninstall all Chromium parts, everything that starts with "Chromium-", chromium-common, etc. Then apt-get install chromium.

Still wouldn't reinstall after chromium-common removed. Also removed the one package that linked to /etc/chromium

Sorry guys that didn't work. It worked for me, but I use Budgie desktop so maybe that makes a difference. Regardless, there are bug reports against Chromium, so it is a waiting game for now unless someone else has a suggestion. Hopefully the maintainers will release a fix soon.

I removed manually the /etc/chromium because has only the file to use the plasma-browser-integration that I us only on firefox and not on chrome.With that removal there wasn't problem on proceed.
