Thanks.  I solved the problem and here is what I wound up doing:

cd /ver/cache/apt/archives
dpkg --force-overwrite -i python-antlr_2.7.7-11_all.deb

Then do the apt[get update and apt-get dist-upgrade over again.

I tried removing antlr and reinstalling and it still had issues because 
they both try to write the same file in the same directory specifically
