Bug Description

Binary package hint: module-init-tools

the needed directory /lib/modules/<prev-version> was a file, I had to remove the file and mkdir the directory, to progress with upgrade. after that run dpkg --configure module-init-tools and dpkg --configure -a. then system became normally bootable.
