I got the same message too on a previous upgrade (IIRC on 2.2.5-x). / was ext3. After resetting / to ext2 it worked. I did not know whz then, and I do not know if that is a bug in glibc, dpkg or kernel.
If unlink on the file fails, I'd definitely go for kernel. Especially since changing back to ext2 fixes it.
