You'r running into a problem described in the installation guide, which
is rather easy to solve. Let me quote from
Sometimes the apt-get dist-upgrade fails saying something cannot find
the symbol __guard. If you encounter something like that, try to find
out what libraries the binary needs (using ldd binary). Install the
libraries one by one using apt-get install libraryname and then resume
apt-get dist-upgrade. It is not clear when and why this happens, it
looks like an apt problem. But installing the libraries first solves it,
so it should not be a big problem.

I've had the problem with bash as well and some other things, and solved
the problem with the above solution. Worked fine and had no issues
afterwards anymore.



BTW: Maybe this is more appropriate on the adamantix lists, I'll leave
that decision up to the list owner.
