dist-upgrade help


hen I try to upgrade my distribution from potato to woody I get the
following error.

97% [Scanning packages]Template parse error near "" at
/usr/lib/perl5/Debian/DebConf/Template.pm line 60, <TEMPLATES> chunk 3.
E: Sub-process /usr/sbin/dpkg-preconfigure --apt returned an error code
E: Failure running script /usr/sbin/dpkg-preconfigure --apt

Unfortunately I know nothing about Perl. I expect that more information
is needed, but I don't know what this information would be.

The steps I took

apt-get update (This fetched the files for stable and testing)
apt-get upgrade (this upgraded the current distribution, this worked)
apt-get dist-upgrade (this failed)

Thanks for any help.
