I confirm the mess. I ran

Code: [Select]
dpkg --configure -a which finished installing the new kernel. Then I emptied the apt cache under /var/cache and rebooted and ran
Code: [Select]
apt autoremove to remove the oldest kernel, and quit. System is running fine. Now waiting for whatever is screwed up to get fixed.
