I wouldn't be using such broad terms; _you_ haven't been able to
upgrade to Sardine unstable for a couple of days now, but that doesn't
mean that Sardine in general is broken.  I (and others) actually use
it daily and it works great for me.

But of course, thanks for reporting the problem! :) Let's try to
figure it out.

Where did you install ssh from?

I tested upgrading 4.2007 to Sardine unstable and installed ssh and it
worked OK.

Both dbus and ssh _do_ contain /var/run, but that's OK since it is a
directory in both.  Right now, I suspect you have a freaky ssh package
that is causing the problems.

Try uninstalling ssh and reinstalling it again from the Sardine

This is quite weird as well.  Can you try to figure out why

    mkdir /var/run/

fails?  Flash full?  /var is a symlink to a non-existing location?
