>From memory it seems it went something like this:
-ran update
-started initial dist-upgrade from remote shell
-  failed when disconnected by remote computer (hour later)
-dist-upgrade again, this time on actual machine (not remote)
-ran into error (afraid I don't recall this one)
-ran either apt-get update or upgrade and several packages were committed,
but not a complete set
-ran dist-upgrade again, have been encountering "can't create transaction
lock" since
