I was performing a apt-get dist-upgrade on my Alpha Station 400 4/233.

And I got this error message:
Unpacking x11-common (from .../x11-common_1%3a7.1.0-16_alpha.deb ...

xserver-common-v3 ???

Are you ugrading Woody to Etch?
upgrade first to Sarge, or resolve errors by hand.
In this case, you could purge xserver-common-v3 before going on with upgrading.
