It's not a problem, per se, it's just that Dag has a newer version of
apt than the one in CentOS.  You chose to install his version, it
replaced the file.

It seems that apt-rpm development has been renewed.

CentOS will evaluate the new packages for stability and update our
packages as appropriate.  Remember, just because new packages exist does
not mean they need to be rolled into an Enterprise distribution like
CentOS.  Nor does CentOS control what packages 3rd parties decide to
use.
