update-manager "crash" while updating

Bug #324640 reported by Istvan Palfalvi on 2009-02-03
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
update-manager (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: update-manager

I Tried to upgrade all the packages from a hungarian server, but I had problems (not found) with 5 packages (ghostscript, ghostscript-x, kubuntu-artwork-usplash, kubuntu-default-settings, libgs8), so I chose a german server (ftp-stud.fht-esslingen.de), and when I tried to update the packages I got this error. (Although update-manager was still running, and I was able to make the refresh for the second time.)

update manager begins to open then crashes. Apport opens to report the bug then Apport crashes.
