says no update available in the middle of the upgrade to gutsy RC when preferences define a low priority for new release

Bug #151943 reported by Xavier Poinsard on 2007-10-12
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
update-manager (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: update-manager

I am trying to upgrade from feisty to gutsy RC with the 64 bits versions.
I started with "sudo update-manager -d -c"
All begins well : it tells me there is a new version (7.10)
I press upgrade...
After a few operations, I tells me that some packages aren't anymore supported,
Then it tells me that my system is up to date, no updates are available.

I finally found that it was because of my /etc/apt/preferences where I had given a low priority to gutsy.
Update-manager should at least warm stunned users about this.

A check for unusual prioriteis in /etc/apt/preferences could indeed be added.
