Bug Description

While installing Ubuntu Studio 10.10 Maverick Meerkate for i386 the install fails and says:

Package linux-headers-generic is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or is only available from another source.
E:
Package linux-headers-generic has no installation candidate.

Since the installation failed I am unsure how to acquire the necessary logs.

This is repeatable and have encountered the bug three times before submitting the bug. To reproduce it: install Ubuntu Studio via the i386 alternate ISO.

Hi Scott,

Please be sure to confirm this issue exists with the latest development release of Ubuntu. ISO CD images are available from http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/daily-live/current/ . If the issue remains, please run the following command from a Terminal (Applications->Accessories->Terminal). It will automatically gather and attach updated debug information to this report.

apport-collect -p linux 593200

Also, if you could test the latest upstream kernel available that would be great. It will allow additional upstream developers to examine the issue. Refer to https://wiki.ubuntu.com/KernelMainlineBuilds . Once you've tested the upstream kernel, please remove the 'needs-upstream-testing' tag. This can be done by clicking on the yellow pencil icon next to the tag located at the bottom of the bug description and deleting the 'needs-upstream-testing' text. Please let us know your results.

Thanks in advance.
