Bug Description

The LPIA architecture has been deprecated in Lucid. This means that any LPIA systems will have to be backed up and a scratch install performed from the i386 or amd64 flavours. For atom based systems this should not be an issue.

I am unsure if there are any platforms which will no longer be supported, if so we may need to warn about those.

Documented at <https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LucidLynx/ReleaseNotes#LPIA%20architecture%20discontinued>:

The lpia architecture present in previous releases has been discontinued as of Ubuntu 10.04 LTS. The hardware is still supported, but systems that were installed as lpia will need to be backed up and reinstalled from scratch using either the i386 or amd64 architectures.

Changed in ubuntu-release-notes:
status: New → Fix Released

An alternative, unsupported, but tested fix is documented at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LucidLpiaMigrationHowTo for those who would like to make backups and try migrating from lpia to i386 incrementally.

the alternative fix notes are not complete, you need to edit the sources list changing every http://ports.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-ports to http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu and you need to work from terminal with apt-get update, apt-get upgrade and apt-get dist-upgrade -f to get upgraded to 10.04.2
