update-manager freezes while upgrading from Feisty to Gutsy

Bug #172614 reported by Pierre Frenkiel on 2007-11-28
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
update-manager (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

I started update-manager to upgrade from Feisty to Gutsy
The download phase lasted about 2 hours (with a 100Mbps link!, but actual rates from 500 to 20 kbps)
but ended without error.
Then the "Installing the upgrades" phase started, and seemed to behave normally, apart to
messages asking for a bug report
      Could not install '/var/cache/apt/archives/cupsys_1.3.2-1ubuntu7.1_i386.deb
      Could not install 'cupsys'
After about 2 hours (30 % according the meter bar) it started:
     "Preparing to configure bluez-gnome", and froze with the following lines in
the terminal window:
   Unpacking replacement libbluetooth2 ...
   Selecting previously deselected package bluez-cups.
   Unpacking bluez-cups (from .../bluez-cups_3.19-0ubuntu3_i386.deb) ...
   Selecting previously deselected package bluez-gnome.
   Unpacking bluez-gnome (from .../bluez-gnome_0.14-0ubuntu2_i386.deb) ...
   Preparing to replace bluez-utils 3.9-0ubuntu4 (using .../bluez-utils_3.19-0ubuntu3_i386.deb) ...
   * Stopping Bluetooth services

I have no idea what to do now.
It would be kind to reply as soon as possible, as I need this machine to work,
and would be sad to be obliged to revert to Fedora....

I started update-manager from a xterm window. When the process froze, the
las lines in this window were:

   could not send the dbus Inhibit signal: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.Spawn.ChildExited:
   Process /usr/bin/gnome-power-manager exited with status 0

After killing the process, I got the message:
Please report this as a bug (if you haven't already) and include thefiles
/var/log/dist-upgrade/main.log and /var/log/dist-upgrade/apt.log in your report.
here they are

At last, I could finish the upgrade with the 2 commands:
    dpkg --configure -a
    apt-get dist-upgrade
I then only got errors for the 3 packages: acpid bluez-utils acpi-support
for which I sent a specific bug report
