Bug Description

Binary package hint: update-manager

do-release-upgrade on ia64 (with sources.list pointing to http://ports.ubuntu.com/) complains that no valid archive was found. Trivial workaround is to say 'y'.

Thanks for your bugreport.

Could you please attach the log from /var/log/dist-upgrade/ to this report? I'm a bit puzzled currently about it because at least for hardy upgrade (gutsy->hardy, dapper->hardy) that should work.
