apt-get upgrade fails after updating


Today, I did my routine apt-get upgrade and noticed that the libc has been
updated. However, now apt-get upgrade fails to configure the updated
package. The error message is:

Preconfiguring packages ...
*** glibc detected *** double free or corruption (!prev): 0x0893e320 ***
/bin/sh: line 1:  6046 Aborted                 /usr/sbin/dpkg-preconfigure --apt
