Solved, maybe (was: Re: Help updating a Jessie installation to Jessie LTS)

Things might be OK.  Things I did:

   * googled for errorackage -- found some pages but not much help -- some 
pages gave long lists of instructions to try, but it sounded more like a 
shotgun approach than any real knowledge based thing.  Some people thought it 
meant a hardware bus error, some thought some kind of memory problem (hardware 
or not), others just suggested commands to try -- maybe there is a better page 
out there that I didn't find

   * Aside: what the heck does errorackage mean / stand for and what is it 
telling me?  Who came up with that "word"?

   * I edited sources.list to get rid of the jessie-updates (I don't think 
that did anything significant with respect to the errorackage error)

   * I did a df and found /boot and /var close to full, I examined /var 
expecting to find a lot of space used for the apt archives, but instead there 
was a bunch of stuff (in /var/tmp as opposed to /var/cache/apt/archives) 
related to mkinit... (I'm writing from a different computer, so I couldn't copy 
and paste) -- something like over 1.5 GB -- deleted all that, then did:

apt-get update

apt-get upgrade

That seemed to work pretty well, I mean, it seemed to install everything 
except the new linux kernel which was held back.

tried:

apt-get dist-upgrade

Found a message in there that said a partition / filesystem was out of space -- 
/var looked ok, so cleared out some space in /boot by deleting an old kernel 
(something like n.n.n -04)

tried 

apt-get dist-upgrade 

This time saw a message that it didn't work and suggested that I try  apt-get 
-f install <and then, presumably, a packagename>

instead, I tried

apt-get -f dist-upgrade

That seemed to work, so things may be ok -- I guess I'll have to watch the 
system for a while and think about rebooting (to put the new kernel in 
service).
