ok, thanks for all the advice guys.

i did a backup of the db, checked all the libc6 files were from v 2.6
(a lot of files), removed the offending item, and all seems well now.
yesterday's and today's updates went flawlessly with no errors, and
everything seems to be working properly

i appreciate the help!
