apt-get fails with segmentation fault
 
Running apt-get fails. Below is partial output, it goes down hill from
there. Any ideas?

Which version of Ubuntu do you use?
Did you do an apt-get update before the apt-get upgrade?

FWIW, this seems similar to or the same as this bug:
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+bug/220762
Colin Watson speculates that the same bug might be in 8.10 (Intrepid),
but they are not sure. If you use 8.10, you might want to add this info.

8.04 - I was avoiding 8.10 and staying with LTS,

The problem started with a routine update using update-manager. So yes
there was an update before the upgrade.

Similar, possibly the same. The only solution I have found says to
remove libc6 and a whole bunch of dependencies, which looks like it
would leave the system almost non functional.



It seems to be a regression.

It's a fairly common problem - less now than it used to be. Just remove
libc6-i686 (you don't need it), complete your install, and reinstall
libc6-i686.

And Robert - please don't post in HTML. I only responded because Mario went
to the trouble of cleaning up your post (well, maybe it was Mario's
computer that went to the trouble, but I tell mine not to read HTML).

You should, however, reinstall libc6-i686 afterwards - it provides
optimizations for newer processors (read: not-nearly-so-old-as-i386!)
