Ok, so it's not osso-thumbnail0 with the error - it's dbus_1.0.2-0osso8_armel.deb! :)

Here's the dbus related output:

	Preparing to replace dbus 0.61-osso28 (using .../dbus_1.0.2-0osso8_armel.deb) ...

	Unpacking replacement dbus ...
	dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/dbus_1.0.2-0osso8_armel.deb (--unpack):
	 trying to overwrite `/var/run', which is also in package ssh
