Relevant error:

dbconfig-common: writing config to /etc/dbconfig-common/bacula-director-mysql.conf
*** WARNING: ucf was run from a maintainer script that uses debconf, but
             the script did not pass --debconf-ok to ucf. The maintainer
             script should be fixed to not stop debconf before calling ucf,
             and pass it this parameter. For now, ucf will revert to using
             old-style, non-debconf prompting. Ugh!

This is actually fixed for karmic, it should be backported to jaunty. Relevant git entry:

Statement of Impact:

Users upgrading bacula from intrepid will get this wanring message:

bconfig-common: writing config to /etc/dbconfig-common/bacula-director-mysql.conf
*** WARNING: ucf was run from a maintainer script that uses debconf, but
             the script did not pass --debconf-ok to ucf. The maintainer

The fix has been applied in the upstream source and has been fixed for Karmic. You can look at the fix at:

http://git.debian.org/?p=dbconfig-common/dbconfig-common.git;a=commit;h=eff8932fbc6289526ece2a7a38c60e4c8ab3f259

I have attached the debdiff which fixes this problem in Karmic.

How to Reproduce:

1. Install bacula from intrepid.
2. Upgrade to Jaunty.

The fix is a one liner and there should be no impact.

If you have any questions please let me know.

chuck

I have reproduced the bacula installation error with dbconfig-common from jaunty, 1.8.40, and can confirm that the version in jaunty-proposed, 1.8.40ubuntu1, allows bacula to successfully complete installation. I also installed and purged several other of dbconfig-common's rdepends and ensured that they were able to add and remove databases successfully with the version from -proposed. Marking verification-done.
