Latest upgrade went wrong. Advice please.

The latest upgrade went awry so I took ilu's advice (posted elsewhere) and did not reboot the machine until there was a fix.
Today I ran apt update which told me that dpkg had stopped. I followed the instructions to fix this.
Then I did apt update and apt upgrade.

When everything was finished I had this error message:
"W: APT had planned for dpkg to do more than it reported back (30 vs 37).
Affected packages: initramfs-tools:amd64 menu:amd64"
:?

Is this serious and what should I do about if?
Can I safely reboot?

create a backup of your system and do the upgrade as usual.

The result above is what I got after doing the upgrade.

I have just asked for another upgrade and I get the 0 0 0 message.
So it looks like the system really is up to date. I shall reboot and see what happens....

Edit: Rebooted and all is well. :D
