Bug Description

Upgrading from 10.04 to 12.04 with

  do-release-upgrad [-d]

fails with

  E:Error, pkgProblemResolver::Resolve generated breaks, this may be
caused by held packages.

I already browsed through dozens of similar bugs on launchpad, but none seemed to apply to my case. A short summary of the things I checked:

 * I purged "xserver-xorg-video-nouveau".
 * I deactivated all ppa repositories and other repositories, the only ones remaining are lucid[-update/-security] main/restricted/universe/multiverse.
 * I updated all packages that were on hold / pinned to a specific version.

Please let me know if you need any further information on the system. Thanks in advance for your support.
