Trouble with apt-get upgrade


I am running Debian squeeze with KDE 4.4.5 and I am trying to complete the latest upgrade. I get the message
Quote:
There are 77 updates and 4 security updates available
from the notifications down in the system tray. So I did a
Code:
sudo apt-get update
followed by
Code:
sudo apt-get upgrade
The update went just fine but the upgrade came up with the following:
Quote:
akonadi (1.3.1-3+squeeze1) stable-proposed-updates; urgency=low

The location of the socket used to communicate with the Akonadi server was
changed to better support home directories on network file systems. After
updating to this version, applications making use of Akonadi will only
work correctly after restarting both the Akonadi server and client
applications.

/tmp/tmp3Bf_fZ (END)
and it just stays there.

How do I end this message with out killing the upgrade?
If I hit ctrl-c it brings me back to the upgrade at this point:

Reading changelogs... Done
I eventually hit enter which gets me back to the linux prompt. I then type "exit" (which does not show on the screen) and hit enter to close the terminal session.
I guess I need to know what that message about 'akonadi' is and how to get around it (or not have it come up in the first place).
I look forward to any and all help.
Thank you in advance.

I had to do some of my upgrades from synaptic, at times there are questions to answer, for instance, "Do you want to continue?"

The update messages are displayed with the less command, which you can easily terminate with the "q"-key, without stopping the upgrade.
