Mario, thanks for the quick reply. However, I had to work (I'm a 
musician) and just got back.
First, it's an AMD 64-bit system. I started update manager which showed 
me an extra banner with the message that I could upgrade to Hardy if I 
clicked on the button. That's what I did. Thereafter the process ran 
automatic until it came with the message that it had encountered an 
unrecoverable error and I had to look in the log for dist-upgrade.
The curious thing is that it did not indicate which packages were broken.
I can of course publish the logfiles somewhere but I don't know if the 
information is very useful.
Hope you - or somebody else too - can help me out.
For the record: tomorrow I will be busy until the end of the afternoon 
(local time =GMT +1).
