Comment(by tick):

 In this case OE moves /usr/lib/  from
 libglib-2.0-0 to libgobject-2.0-0 and adding PR for libglib-2.0-0
 to 5.

 In this case libgobject is depends on libglib-2.0-0_2.16.1-r5 and after.

 There are two ways to solve this issue.
  1. Let libgobject-2.0-0 depends on libglib-2.0-0 (>= 2.16.1-r5) modify
 this on OE.
  2. Let opkg to check if libglib-2.0-0 should upgrade or not. If yes then
 upgrade it first.  This may introduce infinite loop if there are any two
 packages depends on each other and adding PR at the same time.

 In my option, this issues happens because the metadata is wrong, and so
 that opkg does not know upgrade order.
