You don't need to subscribe to be able to post. Using one of the
support channels before sending to d-devel or filing bugs is always
helpful, because it saves maintainers from having to do the triaging
in case this is a local user problem.

Well, you'll need to provide more information to be able to track this
down, but d-d seems to be the completely wrong forum for this. I'd
recommend checking your dpkg and apt configurations. Checking the apt
logs. And for people to be able to help you'd need to provide that
information, logs, and a description of what you did and did not, what
you expected, what happened, etc. Did the files not get updated to the
new version, did they disappear, etc, etc.
