interrupted dpkg can't be fixed because of filesystem location issue?
debian:/home/oncozerov# apt-get upgrade E: dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem.
debian:/home/oncozerov# dpkg --configure -a Setting up initramfs-tools (0.92o) ... update-initramfs: deferring update (trigger activated) Setting up linux-image-2.6.26-1-686 (2.6.26-13) ...

I hope this goes here, and yes, I've tried reading about dpkg, and initramfs, mkinitramfs, pendriving linux, but still I can't find aomething that'll get my in the right direction.

So you have installed debian on a pendrive.
Do you use the same interface(the same hole ) when you are booting from the pendrive?
When linux booting the udev daemon dynamically build the hardware nodes.
One your pendrive is identifyed as sdb , other time as sda.
Use the same hole. Or use uuid for disks in /etc/fstab.
