Upgrading to Hamm OK but I have questions

I downloaded hamm at University and our computer dude kindly wrote it onto
a CD for me. The directory system was a bit of a mess, and the CD was
vanilla iso9660 (no Rockridge extensions or anything, eight dot three
filenames), but after installing the first package (I think it was
dpgk-perl) dselect worked fine. Everything's working well now: I like the
new version of the Gimp and managed to get minesweeper working under Wine
which was the principle reason for the upgrade (Gimp and Wine, not
minesweeper). Thanks, guys. 

However, I had some rather scary looking error messages which I would like
 someone to explain to me. They all looked like

ldconfig: warning: can't open /usr/lib/ <*> (no such file or directory

where <*> = libuid.so.1 , libe2p.so.2 , libext2fs.so.2 , libss.so.2,

is there a problem here, and if so what can I do about it? 

Also, how does dpkg decide to upgrade (or not) when it's "considering"?
