to resolve dependencies (it may be there's a newer linux-serverimage

If this fails, you can install just that package, so you can can
complete the upgrade, with
         dpk -i --force-depends-version 

Then do an
      apt-get -f install

to fix the fallout.

thanks, but <apt-get -f install> failed. One of those circular dependency problems.

In case anyone stumbles on this thread, I ended up simply doing

#apt-get remove linux-server
#apt-get install linux-server

That was a pretty scary thing to do - remove "linux-server"??? - but it works. Linux-server is just a housekeeping meta package, even though it's description says that it is the kernel.
