I had been bitten by this part in the past, too.

The 'dbcheck --fix --yes' operation is transactional, i.e. either the whole
thing (all 400 updates) succeeds, or the whole thing fails (which is what
you are seeing) and no changes are committed.

You'll need to run without --yes, and confirm each one individually, I
think, in order to fix the 399 that are OK.
