1- install wheezy, all is ok, I boot and boot again.  I change it to
jessie (following standard instructions)
This may not help at all because things may have changed in the last
couple of months, but I'll give it a larrup.

I don't know what the "standard instructions" are?
This is exactly what you say above.

If you can install wheezy with a minimum install, no packages other
than what you need to get a bootable system, and you're doing a net
I did that : only standard utilities. Boot and reboot, and rereboot to be well sure.
By only installing the minimum packages on the install of wheezy, you
don't get a lot of stuff left behind from the change to jessie.

On the reboot ***after*** removing the CD/USB stick or whatever, just go
into your /etc/apt/sources.list and change every instance of wheezy to
I did that.
Save the file and the do an apt-get update  and  apt-get upgrade. When

Like I say: if nothing has changed in the last couple of months since I
installed a jessie system on a clean machine. This way has always worked
