On what operating system? Prosody 0.10. Debian stable (with Prosody apt repo). Please provide any additional information below. Add prosody-modules package to Prosody's apt repository is the only solution I can think of, as some non-core modules became core from 0.9 to 0.10, and conflict will happen.

    Debians prosody-modules package is not something we recommend. This conflict was also reported here: https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=877943 A Conflicts condition has been added to our packages, which should prevent this from happening: https://hg.prosody.im/debian/rev/66a437390c1f
