You can't have both chirp and chirp-daily installed at the same time.
Run this command to remove the chirp package:

sudo apt-get remove chirp

Now you should be able to upgrade chirp-daily.

This is a bug in Chirp's Debian packaging script. The metadata should
denote that chirp and chirp-daily conflict or that chirp-daily
replaces chirp. Since this isn't specified, it must be managed by
manually uninstalling one before installing the other.
