Huh? Could you be more specific? And show us the output of

Okay, that's not very good. You need to run
sudo dpkg --configure -a
to get those 22 half-installed packages to complete their installation.
(In addition to resolving whatever's happening with mailman -- although
if apt-get succeeds in getting mailman to upgrade, it'll automatically
run that dpkg --configure -a command for you.)

Is that it? You didn't see a debconf screen warning you about queue
files being present or anything like that?
Alan Turing thought about criteria to settle the question of whether
machines can think, a question of which we now know that it is about
as relevant as the question of whether submarines can swim.
