Interesting, I'm using Ubuntu 19.10 (vs your 18.04) and I did not get the
error, only a warning from dpkg on removal of the old package.

dpkg: warning: files list file for package 'mythweb' missing; assuming
package has no files currently installed
(Reading database ... 300814 files and directories currently installed.)
Removing mythweb (2:31.0+fixes.202003030929.54a568d~ubuntu19.10.1)

That being said, I removed a different version than  you
('2:31.0+fixes.202003030929.54a568d" vs
"2:31.0+fixes.202003051106.1460627").  Perhaps there's a new bug (or
regression) in the latest packaging?
