You mean running the dist-upgrade routine locally? The OP was facing two 
problems for this to be done easily, IIRC.

Yep, you missed the OP:

1/ Got a blank screen when jumping to console (tty)
2/ GDM session expired quickly

So SSH was the option Hendrik also considered and that I found appropiate 
for this case (yes, he also could have try to load the VESA driver in 
order to get a readable console or diving into GDM logs and figure out 
why session expired so quick but this can even take more time that a 
simple SSH update).
