Bug Description

Binary package hint: update-manager

Ubuntu alternate 8.04 LTS desktop i386 CD fails to upgrade 7.10.

1. install gutsy
2. install language-support-fi
3. insert the hardy alternate CD
4. click on upgrade without network
5. verify that it fails

6. get a daily CD with the new upgrader (not available yet)
7. insert the hardy alternate CD
8. clcik on upgrade without network
9. verify that it works

My present ubuntu 7.10 is clean, except it has
*voikko proofreading for Finnish
*closed drivers for audio and video (codecs for mp3, wma, etc., installed via the Ubuntu's Adde/Remove -functionality)

Error information given by the upgrade program in Finnish:
Tarvittavia päivitykseen liittyviä tarkistuksia ei voitu tehdä

Päivitystä määriteltäessä tapahtui ratkaisematon ongelma:

 Tämä voi johtua:
 * Päivittämisestä Ubuntun julkaisemattomaan kehitysversioon
 * Ubuntun kehitysversion käyttämisestä
 * Ubuntuun kuulumattomien, epävirallisten ohjelmapakettien käyttämisestä

Jos kyse ei ole näistä, ilmoita tämä ohjelmavirhe paketille "update-manager" ja sisällytä kansion /var/log/dist-upgrade/ tiedostot virheraporttiin.

Thanks for your bugreport.

It looks like the problem is that the CD does not contain the required voikko package. Please try to (temporarely) remove it or allow the upgrader to use the network and let me know if that works. I will change the code so that on CD upgrades, it will be less strict about languages than it is on networked upgrades.

Could you please download http://people.ubuntu.com/~mvo/update-manager/release-upgrader-0.87.27-test1.tar.gz
and unpack it into a temporary directory (e.g. ~/test-upgrade) then please run:
$ mount /cdrom
$ sudo ./hardy --cdrom /cdrom

and let me know if that works ? Click "don't use network" just as you did in the previous one that failed please.

Although not all fixed bugs have been verified, four tests from Brian showed that update-manager is still able to upgrade from dapper and gutsy, and fixed some bugs. Due to the urgency of some bugs I have copied this to hardy-updates now.

Hi!, I have more or less this same issue, with my copy on Ubuntu 8.10 Alternate, doing 'sudo /media/cdrom/cdromupgrade' runs but it crash at first step.

I downloaded http://people.ubuntu.com/~mvo/update-manager/release-upgrader-0.87.27-test2.tar.gz and then ran 'sudo ./hardy --cdrom /media/cdrom'.

Now it seems to run until step 2 when an error says something about it can't calculate the update (sorry my dialog is in Spanish).

BTW, http://people.ubuntu.com/~mvo/update-manager/release-upgrader-0.87.27-test1.tar.gz crashed at the same first step.

I attached the files in /var/log/dist-upgrade/
