You didn't do anything wrong; the upgrade path is complicated by the new
glibc and the GCC 3.x transition for C++ libraries (all of those libs
ending in c102).  Unfortunately both APT and aptitude are written in

I'm a little surprised the release notes recommend upgrading to sarge's
aptitude first, because as you noticed it pretty much upgrades
everything anyway.

Society is never going to make any progress until we all learn to
pretend to like each other.
