Thanks for the reply, it helped a lot -- I seem to have one problem remaining (below).

Ok, I did the apt-get install firmware-realtek and that got rid of the
complaints about the 8168.

df told me that /var was at 100%, and /boot was at 98%.
I did some drastic deletions in /var, and then tried upgrade again and it
became apparent that I had deleted some essential directories and files,
but the error messages told me what they were so I recreated them.
Aside: I should increase the size of /var and maybe /boot -- they both (of similar size) seem very adequate in my Wheezy system (still in service).
And then, ran apt-get upgrade again and the problems and that got rid of the problems with:
(I feel much better now that the linux images are installed.)
But now I'm at this point:
root@s31:~# apt-get upgrade
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
Calculating upgrade... Done
The following packages have been kept back:
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 1 not upgraded.
I don't know that I'm worried about that, but if someone knows what I need
to do, I'll try it.
