Thanks Sam! I ended up having to reinstall the kernels.

Executing "dpkg -S modules.dep" in a terminal will tell you which 
packages the file modules.dep is in, with the full path. Reinstalling 
the package ("aptitude reinstall <package>" without the brackets) should 
bring the file back.

It seems some packages in our repository got upgraded when they 
shouldn't have. We're looking into the issue.

There's a hard dependency between yeeloong-base and 
linux-image- I recommend that you leave both 
packages installed. You can additionally install a newer Linux-libre 
version, like, without any problems. Currently the Linux-libre 
packages don't upgrade automatically, so you have to periodically check 
for newer versions if you want them. Sometimes we upgrade the dependency 
in yeeloong-base and then you do automatically get the upgrade.
