What "dependency error" did it report?
And how did you query the installed packages as well as the remote
repos for what would be available _after_ the upgrade?

Many users still misread such error messages and don't manage to work
around them as a result. Often, the installed packages are okay, but
during they upgrade they would get replaced and break dependencies.
