    kernel security upgrade fails on depmod

    A security upgrade of the kernel is leaving my computer a bit stumped : it freeze gnome hard on depmod. switching to a virtual console, I see plenty of ata errors.

    the update manager recommends to use dpkg --configure -a to finish the interupted operation but that only reproduces the problem....

    Is there a way out ?

    To get dpkg unstuck I ran

    sudo dpkg --remove --pending
