You don't need aptitude.  Just install the Squeeze kernel with apt-get
and then reboot.  After booting to the new kernel then you will be
able to upgrade udev and proceed normally.

Assuming that you have linux-image-2.6-686 intalled already in Lenny
then as the first part of the upgrade to Squeeze you would pull in the
latest Squeeze kernel.

  # apt-get install linux-image-2.6-686  # or linux-image-2.6-amd64 or whatever

That should want to upgrade linux-image-2.6-686 and install

Or if that is giving you particular difficulties you can install just
the specific latest kernel.  However the actual version number will
change as upgrades are released.

  # apt-get install linux-image-2.6.32-5-686

Note that the apt-get command is 'install' and not 'upgrade'.  A very
common mistake is to try to 'apt-get upgrade SOME_PACKAGE' and that
doesn't do what you expect.
