[After sleeping 4 hours]

When I dist-upgrade (after replace breezy with dapper in sources.list
and apt-get update) the upgrade process stop because an error on
Hylafax-server upgrade. I corrected the problem and then restart
"apt-get dist-upgrade" who finished the process (I think, no more error)
I verify with "apt-get upgrade" who say no package to upgrade. Perhaps
something wrong happens when the dist-upgrade failed (!?) 
Then after post on MalScanner list it seems that the MailScanner version
4.46.2 should NOT compatible with Postfix 2.4.5 both coming with the
Ubuntu Dapper...

I had to upgrade Breezy because Breezy is no more supported by Ubuntu
(!?) to solve this the only solution was UPGRADE to the next version
with changed my sources.list to replace breezy with dapper, right, then
I make update && apt-get dist-upgrade, right !

I followed the https://help.ubuntu.com/community/DapperUpgrades

I blame me "for not following proper processes" I just use the process
given by help.ubuntu.com where is my mistake ?

But thanks anyway to solve my problem.
