This isn't really a migration-specific situation. You have p5.16-extutils-makemaker installed, and are trying to install p5.16-extutils-command, but you can't do that, because they conflict with one another (meaning: they try to install the same files). Decide which of these two you want. Deactivate the one you don't want, then install or activate the one you want.
