On Monday I unfortunately d/l upgrades to the Intrepid Beta, which had
previously been the Intrepid Alpha 6 upgraded online from Hardy. I had
exactly what you describe (same error messages & issues). However, in
addition I could not get online or access any repositories (lost my
DNS and routing references). However I could access all the machines
on my LAN. After screwing around with it for several hours I decided
to do a clean install off my Intrepid Beta 1 live disk. Which has had
one set of upgrades applied today. It seems to have fixed things by
itself. Which is good in one way, but aggravating in another, since I
really wanted to fix it myself in case it happens again.
