I saw the failures with both Update Manager and apt-get. I have a copy
of the log from "sudo apt-get upgrade" if anyone wants it. What was

from. dpkg wanted me to do a reinstall before removing
update-manager-core, but reinstall would fail with this same assertion
failure. I ended up doing
The system is a 32-bit VirtualBox guest, running on a 64-bit 11.10 host.
1. Was there a better way to handle this?
2. Should I file a bug? I saw filesystem corruption (long list of
complaints from e2fsck after the upgrade failure), so I don't know if
I was seeing a problem with the packaging software, the filesystem
(ext4), or VirtualBox. I didn't have any problems with the
corresponding updates on the host.
