know that reflash does not update the rootfs, only the flash images,
therefore, since you used OpenSlug 2.7, the flash image knows nothing
about Debian either.
The general wiki guide to upgrading applies here too - you need to
make the rootfs compatible with the new kernel. The general recovery
methods work too - pull the disk, boot to flash and use this to
examine the disk root partition.
What won't work in this scenario is using ipkg to upgrade the rootfs
remotely, but you can chroot to the rootfs and run Debian commands
