Bug Description

do-release-upgrade eventually terminates with the following error

Could not calculate the upgrade

An unresolvable problem occurred while calculating the upgrade.

This can be caused by:
* Upgrading to a pre-release version of Ubuntu
* Running the current pre-release version of Ubuntu
* Unofficial software packages not provided by Ubuntu

checking /var/log/dist-upgrade/<now>/apt.log showed that the last record starts with 'Broken mplayer2:i386 Depends on mplayer'. This is incorrect: mplayer2 does not depend on mplayer, it conflicts with mplayer. Removing mplayer2 resolved the issue. mplayer2 was installed from ubuntu repository.

Note that the original system has been successfully upgraded, apport reports come from a different system which is configured in a similar way: 14.04 and mplayer2
