Fixing Karmic Koala's Broken tzdata Package

I upgraded my laptop this morning to Ubuntu Karmic Koala. It went smoothly for the most part. At the end though I was stuck with a few packages that were considered local/obsolete in the Synaptic Package Manager; one of which was tzdata. To fix it I had to:
  1. Reinstall libc6 via sudo apt-get --reinstall install libc6
  2. Download the latest tzdata package.
  3. Install the latest tzdata package via sudo dpkg -i /path/to/tzdata.deb
Now everything is working again. Every Ubuntu upgrade is a small adventure. Can't wait to try it on my desktop.
