Bug Description

Binary package hint: apt

Updating from Karmic to Lucid failed suggesting:

apt-get -f install

which gave:

E: Could not perform immediate configuration on already unpacked 'initramfs-tools'

Eventually I found the command:

apt-get -f install -o APT::Immediate-Configure=0

I have the same problem. I wanted to do a dist-upgrade from Karmic to Lucid but I got the same error message.

Architecture: i386

I don't use any nonfree kernel module.

Marking Confirmed per subchee's confirmation message.

Setting importance to Medium as this is very confusing and may affect more than just initramfs-tools.

Changed in apt (Ubuntu):
status: New → Confirmed
importance: Undecided → Medium
