Bug Description

Under the System About Ubuntu it says that I am using 11.04 but I am using 10.10.

Did a full reinstall *not upgrade* on virtual box. Same error..still saying I am using 11.04
Did a full install on 9.04 and then upgrading to 10.10 an had same error of it saying I am using 11.04

Checked with Ubuntu team QA an they are reporting the same error.

Video of this bug was uploaded to youtube. Can view the following link.


Going to report this as a security vulnerability as other files from 11.04 could be "mixed" into 10.10 and can cause a system vulnerability an so that should be fully checked into.

This is a duplicate of bug 690248, and from the comments there it does not seem like any other packages have been "mixed".
