I had a number of problems with the upgrade, starting with not being able to
complete it using the officially recommended graphical tool. I had to go old
school, and spend an evening with apt-get -f and friends, but I eventually
worked through the mess. It was a pretty big mess, and it took several
iterations to get everything upgraded.
I'm not sure exactly what I did. I just worked through it using my Debian Sid
training. That kind of mess used to be a regular part of my life.

Not that I remember. I certainly didn't have any highly critical show
stopping problems. It was just a pain in the ass to get the number of
packages that still needed upgrading down to zero.
