Upgrade from 4.7 -> 4.8 problem?

I upgraded from 4.7 -> 4.8 today, and sysinstall claimed that the
installation failed, saying it couldn't even install the bin
distribution set...

However, it boots with the 4.8 kernel, and all the modification times
I have checked in the system directories say Apr 3 of this year, the
same as the new kernel file...

I ran the install twice, and tried to watch the messages using ALT-F2,
but they scrolled by very quickly and I can't seem to find a log file
of the install anywhere.

So I'm really not sure what is going on. I'd like to know if there is
a way to tell if the system was completely upgraded. Alternatively,
I'd like to know how much trouble I am in :-)
