Bug Description

I'm testing for the Ubuntu GNOME Trusty Alpha 1 candidate and I ran "update-manager -d -c" in an existing Saucy i386. The upgrade aborted due to the lack of a Trusty "extras" repo. I'll attach a screenshot.

This also has a lesser effect on fresh installs ;^)

This happened with me when I was trying to force upgrade Xubuntu 13.10 to Trusty few days ago and I think this will affect all the other flavours as well.

Thanks for reporting, Erick Brunzell (lbsolost) :)

I am sorry, I forgot to mention that my test was on Real Hardware - - it was NOT on a Virtual Machine :)

Thank you!

Based on results after the 17th this may now be fixed but I'll follow up later.

Just forced upgrade Xubuntu 13.10 to Xubuntu Trusty and everything is super fine now :)

Thank you!
