Request #11784 has been rejected by Eschwartz [1]:

This package is the canonical correct name, and if it is not updated
then it should be orphaned, not deleted. HOWEVER, the other package is
a beta package, and just because the beta package is commonly used
does not mean it intrinsically should be the primary version. People
who explicitly want the beta are welcome to install the other package;
meanwhile, people who prefer the stable release should not have this
package deleted...

It's needlessly confusing IMHO because the other package should be
called minecraft-beta, not minecraft-launcher.

If Mojang could clarify whether the beta is actually stable, then this
package could be updated -- it's not being held back because of lack
of maintainer interest, but due to the judgment call of the maintainer
who feels that updating would be incorrect.

Betas are not stable releases and vice versa. These are different
