I was burnt by this problem last Saturday, but I successfully completed a network install CD upgrade on a i386 machine yesterday, just before upgrading the machine that is currently causing me problems. The screen statued that is successfully installed 1090 packages.
Does anyone else believe this is the "mirror problem".

Thanks for the suggestion, but I'm wondering how to determine what is going on on the machine? How did Simon get into a shell?
How long should I wait before rebooting?
