Bug Description

Binary package hint: update-manager

The release of Ubuntu I am using is Ubuntu 7.04 - the Feisty Fawn - released in April 2007
The update-manager that I am using is version 1:0.59.25

I opened up the Update Manager and clicked "upgrade" next to New Distribution Release '7.10' is available. I expected to upgrade from Feisty to Gutsy. Instead I received an error message. The error message reads as follows:

Error during update

A problem occured during the update. This is usually some sort of network problem, please check your network connection and retry.

Evelyn,

Is this still a problem for you? Based on the error message this looks like a problem with the repository server rather than a bug in update manager. These types of problem tend to disappear once the server is fixed. If that is the case we can close this report.

I had the same problem when tried to upgrade from Kubuntu gutsy to hardy with adept manager in 27/03/08. The problem was with official securitty repos.

Diego,

Thanks for the information. As noted above this type of error is often a problem at the server end and tends to disappear once the server is fixed. The best bet is probably to retry later today or tomorrow. Just to be sure you could post the actual text of the error message if you can regenerate it. Then we can check if it is the central Ubuntu repositories or one of the mirror sites.

Richard,

I have tried several times since February 2008 to update and have received the exact same error message. Is there a way for me to update? Thank you for your time.

I'm not sure about this one. You could try removing all the repositories that are not from ubuntu.com from your sources list. See here if you need guidance https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Repositories/Ubuntu. Basically we need to break the problem down a bit so lets start with that

Most of your error messages are from unofficial repos, only the feisty-security entries are official entries.

As another thought, you might also consider contacting the people who run the other repositories to see if they have any know problems with their servers.

With the bzip errors, try running sudo apt-get update and then sudo apt-get upgrade. Hopefully it will go away.

If it doesn't once you get into gutsy and *still* have a bzip error with gutsy security then you cna try commenting out the gutsy security entry in /etc/apt/sources.list, running sudo apt-get update, and then uncommenting it and running sudo apt-get update.

We can never promise clean installs when you have installed software from 3rd party repositories, as you have from the error messages you've posted.

Stop spaming my email with this garbage, the bottom line is that this so called "free OS" is a piece of crap, only you gicks can play with it and it was not intended for the lay man OK
I will continue to report every email about this OS as "spam", you are not the only brains in the world.

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. You reported this bug a while ago and there hasn't been any activity in it recently. We were wondering is this still an issue for you? Can you try with latest Ubuntu release? Thanks in advance.

Hello Diego.
To can change the status of a bug:

Go to the top of the page.
Click on the arrow on the left of the package name (this time update-manager).
A new menu drops down and you can change the status in the listbox.
I don't know if there's a tutorial to learn about using launchpad. I have learnt almost all myself or asking in #ubuntu (irc.freenode.net).

Thanks for your reply. I'm closing it right now.
