Public bug reported:

Ubuntu 8.10 update today of slapd failed with -1 error reported from the
update utility.

This feature was bundled with 27 update released 2008/01/28 18:00 UTC -
probably released within the last 2 hours

I expected this to upgrade smoothly as usual but failed.

I reran using apt-get:

The operation failed but no output was produced. For hints on what went
wrong please refer to the system's logfiles (e.g. /var/log/syslog) or
try running the daemon in Debug mode like via "slapd -d 16383" (warning:
this will create copious output).
