** Description changed:

  I upgraded a VPS from Ubuntu 14.04 LTS to 16.04 LTS.  During the upgrade
  the libc6 preinst script showed this error:
-     Checking for services that may need to be restarted...
-     Checking init scripts...
-     /var/lib/dpkg/tmp.ci/preinst: 355: /var/lib/dpkg/tmp.ci/preinst: 
runlevel: not found
+     Checking for services that may need to be restarted...
+     Checking init scripts...
+     /var/lib/dpkg/tmp.ci/preinst: 355: /var/lib/dpkg/tmp.ci/preinst: 
runlevel: not found
- Then the upgrade process hung for, I think, unrelated reasons.
+ Then the upgrade process deadlocked for, I think, unrelated reasons (I
+ filed bug 1624837 about that).
  /sbin/runlevel is part of the 'upstart' package in 14.04, but it was
  moved to systemd-sysv in 16.05.
  At this point in the upgrade upstart already upgraded to the xenial version, 
but systemd-sysv wasn't yet installed.
