OK, as in MDV the system loses the address of the server. restarting the 
network doesn't help. The box shows the dns server, but...

If you reboot, and then use urpmi --auto-update or urpmi --auto-select the 
system will finish the upgrade.
The x-window may not start so boot into a console. 
The safest way to do that is boot using the  failsafe line and then init 3
(adding failsafe to the boot option may not work either)
