I downloaded version 86 from SqueakMap, installed it manually, and then
upgraded using the PackageLoader. Everything worked fine until right at
the very end, where I got a Warning. The Warning said "blah blah you
can click on Proceed to try again, which will probably work". Certainly
I didn't get any errors after that.

I presume that this is normal and fine and I haven't just destroyed my
image, leaving it a smoking ruin of radioactive rubble? Certainly,
opening a MonticelloBrowser I can open SnapShotBrowsers on packages and
look at bits, without things blowing up, so I think I'm in the clear...
