Could it be saying that dependencies are "unmet" meaning not met?  If you
can, please send a log of "apt-get upgrade" and maybe I can figure it out.
I've done three slink->potato upgrades so far and may know the problems

As for the unaligned traps, I'm due to look into those shortly.  There's
some unaligned accesses going on in the C++ startup code (which was
*supposed* to be 64-bit clean).  If someone wants to look for the problem,
be my guest (I've got a nasty binutils bug to look at and fix first).
