Bug Description

I tried to upgrade from Ubuntu 18.04 to 20.04 but got the error:

An unresolvable problem occurred while calculating the upgrade.

This was likely caused by:
* Unofficial software packages not provided by Ubuntu
Please use the tool 'ppa-purge' from the ppa-purge
package to remove software from a Launchpad PPA and
try the upgrade again.

I removed two PPAs using ppa-purge and tried again but I am getting the same error.
