ubuntu-keyring (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: update-manager

Ran dist upgrade to 7.10 through upgrade manager. Upgrade failed during install. Warnings about failed packages during the install, but no decent information returned about what went wrong. Finally, upgrade process failed outright with:

I'm closing this report because it was caused by a locally installed version of libreadline5. Don't hesitate to submit any new bug.

Changed in update-manager (Ubuntu):
status: Confirmed → Invalid
affects: update-manager (Ubuntu) → ubuntu-keyring (Ubuntu)
