Update from 2.6.27-13-generic to 2.6.27-14-generic fails

I received notification of a 'proposed' update (which being adventurous I usually take) from kernel version 2.6.27-13-generic to 2.6.27-14-generic. The update failed, I received an application crash notice, and from that point Synaptic complained of a broken package which I removed. I subsequently received error messages referring to v14 whenever I installed anything from Synaptic. I was finally able to resolve this by removing all kernels except v12 with Synaptic and then reinstalling v13. This removed all error messages. Anyone else have problems with v14?

This isn't really an issue with the kernel, but with your distribution itself.
