I'm making progress with this --- thanks for the advice.  But I don't
get the "aptitude is not recommended" thing: the upgrade just got
stuck on 'sudo apt-get upgrade with something like "the following 690
packages will be held back, 0 to install, 0 to remove"; running 'sudo
aptitude safe-upgrade' instead came up with a solution & is now
upgrading those packages.
