update-manager 0.59.24 fails to upgrade to gutsy
Binary package hint: update-manager
It seems to be due to a couple of trivial Python NameErrors.
I ran the following command. I clicked "Upgrade" next to the prompt to upgrade to 7.10. I clicked "Upgrade" on the message box that popped up. A popup showed a progress bar for downloading the upgrade tool. Then the following error messages happened.
It seems there are two obvious problems here, both Python NameErrors. First is one that doesn't have a full traceback, but does show that there was a usage of "dbus" without an import. The second shows a usage of "os" without an import.
radix@naota ~% update-manager -c -d
could not send the dbus Inhibit signal: global name 'dbus' is not defined
Traceback (most recent call last):
if os.getuid() != 0:
NameError: global name 'os' is not defined
