Bug Description

b43-fwcutter is dependent on a web resource that may not be available when doing an upgrade on a closed network with a local package repo. This makes the upgrade to 9.04 fail and breaks wireless on people who are unfortunate enough to have a Broadcom wireless card.

This was an upgrade from ubuntu 8.10 to 9.04.

$ sudo dpkg --configure -a
