Update base-files to 3.1.2-0.0.1, or downgrade it to 3.1.2. Except for
the version number, they are identical; 3.1.2 has just been rebuilt as
3.1.2-0.0.1 to have a newer version number than 3.1.2-0.0.0.3.pure64.

After you have installed the appropriate base-files version, just
perform an upgrade as usual. This should (possibly among other things)
update libc6 to 2.3.2.ds1-21.
