Sorry! I spoke too quickly: it's humming along now.
Also, be warned on one of
my systems with a whole heap of extras and
other packages installed, It seemed to be installing packages OK and
then said it need 4MB of disk space, and exited.
There was about 900MB free before booting into the upgrade. After
starting in single user and moving about 300M of data from /, and
restarting the upgrade, it was successful.
