This time it was easier to solve. I followed clem's instructions to remove nvidia-kernel-dkms and nvidia-glx, but the system told me they were not installed (Ididn't understood why, as nvidia drivers were installed and running well before upgrading). So I did an 'apt-get install nvidia-kernel-dkms nvidia-glx' and all was installed. I rebooted and now all seems to run well.
But once again it was not a smooth upgrade. And there is a lot of people who has nvidia graphics cards. I know a lot of people that would panic if this happened to them. To clem's attention.
My system has an Nvidia GT-430 installed and I've had something of the opposite problem after updating to Update Pack 3. The update went fine and I rebooted without a problem afterward. However, unlike my experience with my other LMDE install pointing to the 'incoming' (updated to pre-release Update Pack 3 a few weeks ago), when attempting to boot into the Update Pack 2 kernel I can only boot into a prompt. Removing nvidia-kernel-dkms and nvidia-glx at the prompt and reinstalling fixes the problem as Clem said it would. I like how that I went from a prompt to the login screen right after 'nvidia-kernel-dkms' was reinstalled.
