The stable release notes say to upgrade apt first and then use aptitude for the dist-upgrade. READ THE DEBIAN-USER LIST ARCHIVE from the last week for many, many good hint and info. And like Nixon said 'trust, but verify'. While Debian has super-cow powers, some times there is a fly in the ointment. Now back to our regularly scheduled program... BTW how many packages upgrade ok, how may didn't?
