Bug Description

While upgrading from 7.04 to 7.10 via the amd64 alternate install CD,

"Could not calculate the upgrade

A unresolvable problem occurred while calculating the upgrade.

Please report this bug against the 'update-manager' package and include the files in /var/log/dist-upgrade/ in the bugreport."

I will attach the log files mentioned.

Also, it just occurred to me that I should mention how I ran the upgrade process. I manually mounted /dev/cdrom0 as /media/cdrom and ran sudo /dev/cdrom/cdromupgrade. The auto-run failed to start because the CD auto-mounted as a pathname with spaces in it (/media/Ubuntu 7.10 amd64/).

I have not upgraded in a long time. Instead of upgrading, I reinstalled (to get the 32bit version for easier compatibility with some non-Free software I need to use for work, etc).

I think you can close this issue report now.

Thanks for following up. I'm closing this report due to your last comment. Don't hesitate to submit any new bug.
