After install bash this error message is printed:

sh: error while loading shared libraries: libreadline.so.5: cannot open shared object file: no such file or directory

then package readline is installed.

This error makes your system UNBOOTABLE.

When I try to reboot, I get this message with some error about kdm not being able to start.
I also tried to boot to a bash shell and it doesn`t work: I get this error with a kernel panic.

The error is that libreadline.so.5 and libhistory.so.5 are present in /usr/lib instead of /lib. I temporarily copied these into /lib so that the boot process completes successfully.

I've moved the libraries to /lib in 5.0-3.

You can ignore the "error while loading shared libraries" error during the upgrade though. It is not fatal and only occurs when readline or ncurses is updated.
