update-manager (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

While trying to upgrade a kubuntu system from feisty to gutsy, the upgrade-manager tool crashed and vanished completely. I started the upgrade with 'adept_manager --version-upgrade' and pressed the version upgrade button in adept.

The crash occured after the dialog where you are told that some packages are no longer supported and might be suggested to be removed in a later step.

It might be of relevance that I was logged into the machine via ssh -X while doing this.

Logfiles from /var/log/dist-upgrade follow.

sorry, I forgot to fill in the package name field when I created the bug

I have exactly the same error during upgrade process and I wast not logged via ssh. The only solution that worked for me was to change locales settings in /etc/environment to en_EN instead of pl_PL and then executing the script from /temp/kde-root/some_numbersUpgradeManager/ (I'm not really sure if name of the script and directory are 100% correct) which was still there after upgrade-manager crashed. After that upgrade went fine.

I have the same problem with locale "fi_FI.UTF-8", not logged via ssh.

The error does not occur if in KDE System Settings I select English as the System Language and add English into the Locales' Languages list. Only selecting the system language does not help.

After changing the languages as described I logged out and in, and ran 'kdesu "adept_manager --version-upgrade"' from Konsole.
