Have you attempted the upgrade again? Hopefully it was just a one time thing.

Also, it appears you have automatix installed. Unfortunately that makes our debugging much harder (automatix is not an officially supported piece of software). Because of that, we might not be able to help you upgrade. That means that if it doesn't work when you attempt the upgrade again, you will need to backup all of your important information and then install Gutsy manually.

To ensure ease of upgrades in the future, it is best to not install automatix.

We are closing this bug report because it lacks the information we need to investigate the problem, as described in the previous comments. Please reopen it if you can give us the missing information, and don't hesitate to submit bug reports in the future. To reopen the bug report you can click on the current status, under the Status column, and change the Status back to "New". Thanks again!

Changed in release-upgrader-apt:
