potato -> sid
Yes, I know it's foolish to go from Potato to Sid in a single bound, but
I uninstalled pretty much everything from potato - and left just a
skeleton system for the upgrade. Apt-get -f dist-upgrade and then
waited. After downloading apt freaked out (I can't remember at which
point), so I used dselect to see if that could sort it out. It wanted
to download another 40MB, for a complete upgrade I guess. Fine, so I
waited some more. Now it's done it is having difficulty with
Setting up debconf (1.1.14) ...
no type given for question at /usr/share/perl5/Debconf/Question.pm line
dpkg: error processing debconf (--configure):
subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 255
Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
And obviously loads of important stuff ain't getting done.
How do I get out of this one?
