I am also affected by this error. Confirming bug. I can provide my /var/log/dist-upgrade/ files too if needed, but they appear to be very similar to DLCBurggraaff's.

Further investigation reveals that this problem seems to be caused by python-launchpad-integration depending on python < 2.6, so I'm adding launchpad-integration to the "Affected" list.

there is an ongoing transition in jaunty that's expected and has been announced on the lists no need to open bugs

@Sebastien Bacher: Which lists?
It is not mentioned in

rww (rww) wrote :


Looks like it was mentioned on ubuntu-devel-announce at . I missed that message due to some recent problems with my mail client. I guess this is an object lesson about checking the lists before reporting bugs ;)

Anyway. It looks like python-launchpad-integration for i386 has been transitioned correctly, as it requires python << 2.7 and correctly uses /usr/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/. python-launchpad-integration for amd64 hasn't been transitioned yet, though, hence the problems we're seeing. python-launchpad-integration isn't in the ~pythoneers PPA, so adding the line from the mailing list won't expedite anything.

launchpad-integration was built on 2009-02-22 on amd64;
 it is more likely a mirror which is not up tp date, but then, how did you get the new python-defaults?

@Matthias Klose,

This is not a mirror issue; I got the packages directly from launchpad librarian. As I've already said, amd64 has not been transitioned correctly.

The amd64 python-launchpad-integration .deb created from the build you linked has the following Depends:
libc6 (>= 2.2.5), libglib2.0-0 (>= 2.12.0), liblaunchpad-integration1 (>= 0.1.17), python (<< 2.6), python (>= 2.5), python-central (>= 0.6.11)
It only includes /usr/lib/python2.5 stuff, not python2.6 stuff.

The i386 p-l-i .deb created by has the following Depends:
Depends: libc6 (>= 2.1.3), libglib2.0-0 (>= 2.12.0), liblaunchpad-integration1 (>= 0.1.17), python (<< 2.7), python (>= 2.5), python-central (>= 0.6.11)
It includes both /usr/lib/python2.5 and /usr/lib/python2.6 stuff.

I'd like to mention that the version that has been pointed out (0.1.22) is infact the version that I'm trying to install, which has the bad dependencies. I've looked at the i386 and amd64 debs and they have different dependencies. i386 asks for python << 2.7 and amd64 asks for python << 2.6.

Bug reports are still coming in about this, and I just tried upgrading to Jaunty again and it exhibited this problem, so I'm changing the status of this bug back from Fix Released to Confirmed.

@Robert, please don't do that. The fix has been uploaded to Jaunty, it just hasn't been published yet. There is a delay between uploading the package, waiting for the package to build, and then having the package hit firstly, and then mirrors.

I'm going to set this back to Fix Released, as I've just verified via the build logs that launchpad-integration 0.1.23 does fix the issue.

My upgrade now continues - the problem is resolved.

Alas the upgrade now fails at the end with what looks like a python version problem -- see the attached screenshot.

@Steve Kowalik, @Matthias Klose: My apologies. I misread Matthias' comment and thought he said that 0.1.22 fixed this bug. Anyway, I just tried an upgrade to Jaunty again, and it worked fine. Thanks for the bug-fix :)

Retried the upgrade. It failed at the same point as on 2009-03-01. However, after the reboot it turns out I have a workable system. For as far as I can see any update fails at the end with an abort. The update is applied however. The package is not deleted from /var/cache/apt (the pertinent synaptic setting is still there) - "apt-get clean" needs to be run.

Just reporting, no immediate fixes needed nor expected - after all this is still alpha.
