Bug Description

Binary package hint: update-manager

So, the diff for update-manager 0.87.24 includes this fix:

 #: ../DistUpgrade/DistUpgradeController.py:308
-#, fuzzy, python-format
+#, python-format
 msgid "A upgrade from '%s' to '%s' is not supported with this tool."
-msgstr "An upgrade from \"%s\" to \"%s\" is not supoprted with this tool."
+msgstr "An upgrade from \"%s\" to \"%s\" is not supported with this tool."

Which is great, except this only corrects the string for en_GB - the source string still says "A upgrade", which is what will be shown in the en_US locale, and is incorrect! The source string should also be corrected to "An upgrade".

Thanks for your bugreport.

We should fix it for .1 I think. Then we can also add a i18n update and I will unfuzzy the strings manually.

How do I reproduce this to verify that the bug is fixed?

Copied to hardy-updates. It has been verified that the new update-manager can successfully upgrade 7.10 to 8.04 without noticeable regressions. Unfortunately it could not be verified from a third party that this bug is really fixed, but we strongly believe it is. If you still have problems, please report back here. Thank you!
