Package: libc6
Version: 2.13-3
Severity: critical
Tags: sid

The 2.13-3 version of libc6 doesn't include the lib64 symlink (in root and in /usr), thus making the system unusable (and blocking dpkg in the middle of operations).

Restoring the symlink solve the problem.

I broke my setting with the libc upgrade this morning. But recreating 
the symbolic links indeed fixed the problem.

For those who want a method to rescue: take a netinst iso, or whatever 
linux rescue or live disk you prefer. Mount the linux disk / and /usr 
file system somewhere (with debian netinst / is /target) and do

mount /dev/sdxx /target
cd /target/lib
ln -s /lib /lib64
mount /dev/sdyy /target/usr
cd /target/usr
ln -s /lib /lib64

and then reboot

You can then do

apt-get -f install
apt-get -f upgrade

to finish the pending upgrade

In case you still have a root shell around (probably most people
should have after apt-get just failed), call the linker directly
to run ln:

	/lib/ld-linux-x86-64.so.2 /bin/ln -s /lib /lib64

And lost in space
