Well, you have upgraded a system with a very outdated mc, but apparently 
mc itself wasn't upgraded, and now it broke your mc as a side-effect and 
you are asking what could be the problem?

To be honest, no idea, the upgraded packages seem to be mostly irrelevant 
to the matter. It seems that you have some problem with a terminal 
emulator or how keys are delivered to the console applications... check 
that other applications like vim are still ok, remember whether you have 
changed anything in this area, see which sequences are delivered in cat.

First you can find out whether it's a user profile problem or a 
system-wide problem by creating a new user and running mc in there.
