7.04 - 7.10 upgrade fails (Could not calculate upgrade)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: update-manager

I tried several times to upgrade via the internet and failed without any indication why. Eventually I tried upgrading from the alternate CD. First try allowing additional internet upgrade also failed silently so I requested a local upgrade, from the CD only. This failed with the "Could not calculate upgrade" popup but the update manager now offers me a partial update.

This looks similar to 139878, but since I have no unresolved upgrades (nothing showing on update manager prior to dist-upgrade and I tried "Fix broken packages" in symantic) I have opened a new bug.

The machine was installed with Ubuntu and the xubuntu-destkop package added later. This update attempt was run from the gnome desktop. I mention this only because I notice some odd remarks about removing ubunutu-destkop in the material below.
PS : I'm doing this upgrade to I can get to Hardy when it comes !!
