Minor bobble in etch->lenny upgrade
 
Just upgraded an old etch box to lenny via aptitude, ran into the
following minor problem:

(Reading database ... 22081 files and directories currently installed.)
Preparing to replace mount 2.12r-19etch1 (using .../mount_2.13.1.1-1_i386.deb) ...
You have NFS mount points currently mounted, and this version of mount
requires that nfs-common be upgraded before NFS mounts will work.

Aborting install.
dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/mount_2.13.1.1-1_i386.deb (--unpack):
subprocess pre-installation script returned error exit status 1
Errors were encountered while processing:
/var/cache/apt/archives/mount_2.13.1.1-1_i386.deb
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
A package failed to install. Trying to recover:
Press return to continue.


I've no idea whether or not there's anyway to make this happen without
user intervention; I just unmounted the NFS disk and restarted aptitude,
which then proceeded without problem.

I also run into this issue at my lab.

This will need to be really well advertised in the release notes because it
is not so simple to recover from such problem.

Vincent
