Yes, and this isn't easy when one has upgraded several dozen of
packages at the same time. :(

If a similar problem occurs in the future, a workaround could be
a script that parses /var/log/dpkg.log and feed apt-listchanges
with the package names (once the problem is fixed).

Note: however, this may be too late, e.g. things may already be
broken by the upgrade, without the possibility to revert.
