    It appears the dashboard workers may have fails to stop during the package
    upgrade. Could you try stopping the dashboard workers and then retry
    package upgrade? This should not normally be necessary, the upgrade
    handling in the package should have taken care of this, so we'll take a
    look at why this may have failed.


    # apt-get remove puppet-dashboard
    E: dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'dpkg --configure -a' to
    correct the problem.
