First, clean out your apt cache by running this command:

sudo apt-get clean

Next, make sure you have 'aptitude' installed. It should be on your 
system already, but it doesn't hurt to run this command quickly:

sudo apt-get install aptitude

Finally, run the following commands:

sudo aptitude update && sudo aptitude dist-upgrade

I find that running aptitude and using dist-upgrade results in very, 
very few problems when updating Dapper from day to day.

When I first upgraded from Breezy to Dapper, I had to run the above 
command line twice in a row to get everything installed properly, but 
aptitude and dist-upgrade did get the job done with minimal pain.
