don't know - I had same issue
In my case I found out that initrd was broken. I still have to unpack the
initrd copy /sbin/switch_root and package initrd again, so that I can boot.
Why this - I don't know ...

Perhaps you make a copy to virtual machine or another computer and try it
changes are usually not applied directly to productive systems, you do it on
a test system first and take notes - best write step by step guide
further more read carefully the upgrade instructions provided by debian. If
you stick to them, you usually won't have problems.
