Default can't boot after kernel upgrade to 2.6.27-11

hi,
these 3 last days, Ubuntu people realeased 3 kernel versions:
2.6.27-11.25 2.6.27-11.26 2.6.27-11.27
each time, the dpkg.log seemed perfectly normal
upgrade linux-image-2.6.27-11-generic 2.6.27-11.26 2.6.27-11.27
status installed linux-image-2.6.27-11-generic 2.6.27-11.27
but "dpkg-l ..." gave:
pi linux-image-2.6.27-11-generic 2.6.27-11.27 Linux kernel . . .

question 1: what means exactly "pi"?
According the headers, it's for "desired = Purge" "status = Inst", but that
explains almost nothing...

Then, I couldn't reboot, as the modules were not actually installed
and I had to run "dpkg --reinstall install" for
linux-restricted-modules-2.6.27-11-generic
linux-image-2.6.27-11-generic
linux-headers-2.6.27-11-generic
linux-headers-2.6.27-11
to fix it.
question 2: did anybody have the same problem? (I had it on 2 computers)
question 3: has anybody an explanation?

cheers,

It says it's pending a purge - so the next time you run dpkg it should
actually remove it. Not what you'd want, so I'm not sure why, unless
there's actually yet another version coming in...

No. I've been doing the upgrades about weekly, and don't see a problem.
There's something wrong there. When kernel upgrades have new release
numbers (eg 2.6.27.11 -> 2.6.27.12) you get a completely separate kernel,
and the old one remains bootable. When it's replacing an existing kernel,
there's always the possibility of corrupting the existing data.

I'd want to see much more of the install log.

hi Derek,
sorry for the delay, but I wanted to wait a couple of days in case
they release a 4th sub-version of 2.6.27-11... and then, my laptop died
and I had to get an other one...

cf attached file. lines 52 and 67 look funny:
upgrade from 2.6.27-11.27 to 2.6.27-11.27
Is there a hidden sub-sub-version number ?
I suspect a relationship with the problem I had.
