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.
