The following error occurred during my attempted upgrade, via aptitude, to 
Edgy Eft from Dapper Drake.

I've tried deleting the file `/usr/lib/' (so it _can't_ be 
overwritten) to solve this problem.  Does anyone have any further ideas?

Thanks, Bob

P.S.  Should I just download the official Edgy CD and use it for a re-install?
