I had a similar experience with the upgrade from 8.04 to 8.10. During the upgrade the screen froze and I was forced to power down. After booting again I was able to do a dpkg --configure -a which completed the upgrade process. Rebooting again brought everything up successfully, until tried an apt-get upgrade, which provoked this error:

Setting up libchipcard-tools (4.1.3-2) ...
chown: cannot access `/var/run/chipcard': No such file or directory
dpkg: error processing libchipcard-tools (--configure):
 subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 1
Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

Running mkdir /var/run/chipcard seemed to sort it out.
