Ok, with emacs dbc192b4c239c2da8c83def0b0a877d7f179172a I get the output
below when upgrading three packages.  I can't spot any messages that
look like errors during deletion.  Oh well, I can't spot any messages
about deletion at all!

After `U x', the bottom of the packages buffer shows:

  cider              20150616.1226 obsolete              Clojure Interactive 
Development Environment that Rocks
  company            20150616.439  obsolete              Modular text 
completion framework
D helm               20150616.539  obsolete              Helm is an Emacs 
incremental and narrowing framework
  helm               20150617.545  obsolete              Helm is an Emacs 
incremental and narrowing framework
  highlight-symbol   20150430.1552 obsolete              automatic and manual 
symbol highlighting

So even after `x'-ecution of the upgrade, there's still an operation
left which will delete one of multiple obsolete helm versions?  Well,
indeed, another `x' deletes the marked version but that's the version
that is even older, e.g., the current upgrade actually obsoleted the
helm version 20150617.545.  The version 20150616.539 was already
obsolete yesterday.

That looks like if package.el would try to keep one "backup version"
while marking older versions for deletion, thus a user has to do `U x'
and then another `x' for upgrading and deleting old non-backup versions.
I never did the second `x' because it hasn't been needed previously.

Well, that theory might be completely wrong but it matches what's
displayed in *Packages* and what's contained in ~/.emacs.d/elpa/.  And
it would also make sense because it would allow users to easily revert
to the last working version of a package in case of a breakage... (If a
second `x' should be required is a matter of opinion.)
