Good point. It all seems OK now, and that's the last of my upgrades
(except the old laptop, which now won't run do-release-upgrade, or
software-center or update-manager at all (crashes and dumps core). It
still manages to do a regular apt-get upgrade, but for some reason it
won't run anything related to upgrading from 14.* to 15.*
