Bug Description


64bit users on ubuntu 8.04 and 8.10 are presented with an unsatisfiable upgrade of the plugins because the core failed to build and plugins package can be upgraded.

Either this should be fixed, or the newer package removed, because the user loses trust in the orange upgrade button - it says there are upgrades available but really can't upgrade anything.

Is this really broken on 8.04? There shouldn't be any upgrades appearing for them.

On 8.10, sadly, we can't do either of those things - the problem is somewhere in an interaction between mono & the PPA buildds, neither of which we have control over. And removing the newer package for amd64 would also remove it for i386, which works just fine.

As the PPA whiteboard says, however, we've built an amd64 package ourselves. You can download it from - the gnome-do-plugins package will then be upgradable.
