Status changed to 'Confirmed' because the bug affects multiple users.

Changed in ubuntu-release-upgrader (Ubuntu):
status: New → Confirmed

I'd reported a similar problem at Bug #1637781. I uninstalled all ros-indigo packages while leaving ros-jade installed, but still got "Could not calculate the upgrade" when attempting to upgrade 14.04 LTS to 16.04 LTS.

So this may be a problem with ros-jade as well as the older ros-indigo.

Does the ROS crowd read this? Or does this need to be reported somewhere else?

I don't understand the questions. Can you explain please ?

I am not sure if the question was directed at me, but in case it was, I
will explain my situation:

When the upgrade to 16.06 was available for Ubuntu (I currently have
14.04), I tried to upgrade a few times. However, I kept getting the
following error:

Could not calculate the upgrade

An unresolvable problem occurred while calculating the upgrade.

 This can be caused by:
 * Upgrading to a pre-release version of Ubuntu
 * Running the current pre-release version of Ubuntu
 * Unofficial software packages not provided by Ubuntu

If none of this applies, then please report this bug using the command
'ubuntu-bug ubuntu-release-upgrader-core' in a terminal.

When I reported it to Ubuntu, I encountered other error reports with the
exact same description. They indicated that the error was due to some
conflict with the ros-indigo package. I do have this package, too. So this
may fall into the third category above: "Unofficial software packages not
provided by Ubuntu". However, I don't know why the conflict arises. Since I
need ros-indigo for certain projects, I never tried to uninstall it and
upgrade.

I am sorry for the limited information I have. Unfortunately, this is all I
know about the error.

Thanks,
Pinar.

Thank you Pinar for your answer.

I am not working with Ubuntu team, but I received the mail :

Does the ROS crowd read this? Or does this need to be reported somewhere
else?

As I taught it was for me, I answered.

But as I met the same problem I will share with you my experience:

Indeed, it's a ROS problem.
I tried a lot of things to solve the problem, but all failed.
I reported the problem to Ubuntu, but the answer took times to come.
So I saved all my data in an external hard drive and formatted the disk
with the version 16 of Ubuntu.
Unlike Windows, when one install Ubuntu, a set of useful softwares
installs automatically with, so I did not have much to install and
configure behind, then things went fast.

Best regards
