Upgrading non-user installed packages from within the Application 
Manager (that is, in red pill mode) is not supported as of Maemo 3.2 and 
will generally brick your device.  If you can find an older package and 
downgrade again in red pill mode, that might work, but magic:sys is a 
metapackage that is work toward supporting a "dist-upgrade" type thing, 
as far as I know.  The only sure fix is a reflash.

Hope this helps!
