Rebooting a bunch of times (perhaps half a dozen), "solved" the problem, in
that eventually "dpkg --configure -a" executed without failing. Not exactly a
satisfying solution, but I'm a whole lot happier now than I was an hour ago.

Now the biggest problem seems to be that the upgrade usefully removed all the
KDE plasma desktop settings, so I will have to spend a bunch of time tomorrow
trying to get everything back more-or-less as it was.

Other minor issues remain, but google will probably help out.
