Have you ever had LVM installed on this system before?

You can close this.  It seems that the main partition, formatted as ext3, had
been corrupted somehow when I installed Partition Magic 7 on a different
(windows) partition and when it had asked to fix a problem I had not realised
the implications to the Linix partition.

After some checking I realised that the main Linix partition was marked as a
'ext3bbj' partition, so obviously the upgrade routine must have boomed on
finding this.

I changed it (back) to ext3 and the upgrade worked.

Sorry about the false alarm.
