Einstein defined insanity as: "trying the same thing and expecting a different answer". In spite of that I tried apt-get dist-upgrade again and got:
root@AbNormal:/home/comp# apt dist-upgrade

The following packages will be upgraded:
2 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
1 not fully installed or removed.
Need to get 0 B/567 kB of archives.
After this operation, 12.3 kB of additional disk space will be used.
Do you want to continue? [Y/n]
Accepting the default I got:
ldconfig: Writing of cache data failed: No such file or directory
dpkg: error processing package libc-bin (--configure):
subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 1
Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
slightly different from my first message.
