The key here is 'after a package update/upgrade'.  You are attempting to
track the daily development tree which all Ubuntu development happens
in, which will obviously lead to breakage.

Breezy is not recommended for normal users.  As it says, very
prominently, it is only recommended for people who are comfortable with
breakage in their systems, and fixing this breakage.  It is very early
on in the development cycle.

If you are not comfortable repairing your system from a broken state, I
recommend you hang back with Hoary until Breezy starts stabilising.
