The latest update seemed to me to be rather large.
The apt-get update completed but the following apt-get upgrade
failed with some errors including a 404 or two.
The suggestion was to apt-get update - don't do that after a
successful update, it causes the entire upgrade to download again.
It took 3 apt-get upgrade to get the entire list of packages down
and then complete the upgrade.
