Have attached the patch for the same. Tested it in my environment and
it works fine. Probably takes up an additional minute to remove all
the symlinks/files before copying them again. But better than actually
me removing the install directory manually.

[ I also heard from IRC this might be a bug with ubuntu only, but then
this should not break anywhere ]
