OK, I've done some more digging.  Several different threads like this one 
where the next guy said "Run the command it told you to run" like I just did, 
and the command didn't work.

Most of these pages aren't in English, which is always a good sign that you 
have a really rare problem.

I have gleaned a couple of things to try by reading the followup and the next 
suggestion that apparently worked.  However, I have no special knowledge of 
the behind the scenes guts stuff of apt, and cannot endorse these 
suggestions.  I am just passing them along.

Suggestion 1:

rm /var/lib/dpkg/updates/*

Suggestion 2:

apt-get clean

Try your luck.  I doubt you can make things any worse with either of these.
