Default Kubuntu 9.04-9.10 failed

Tried to upgrade from Jaunty to Karmic this morning which was going well until
it got to kerneloops-daemon where I got an error saying it couldn't be
updated.

I tried doing the upgrade manually, but I'm still getting the same error:
sudo dpkg -i --force-overwrite /var/cache/apt/archives/kerneloops-
daemon_0.12+git20090217-1ubuntu4.1_i386.deb
Selecting previously deselected package kerneloops-daemon.
(Reading database ... 221449 files and directories currently installed.)
Unpacking kerneloops-daemon (from .../kerneloops-

Could someone help me with this please?

It appears to be trying to add a user who belongs to group 65534, but this group does not exist.

65534 seems an awfully large number. If it was me I would try creating that group, but I have no idea if that might have repurcussions.
