Thanks for your bugreport.

This was a safety measure to prevent a upgrade to a known bad version (this python version caused the upgrade to break). Please just try again. Your mirror probably has not yet got the new fixed version and once its there everything should be back to normal.

Changed in update-manager (Ubuntu):
status: New → Incomplete

German mirror still has that problem. Any way to select a different mirror for update-manager?

I had the identical problem. The German mirror does not seem to be refreshed. But the following enabled me to progress the installation:

From the desktop menu bar select "System" - "Administration" - "Synaptic Package Manager".

In the package manager select the menu "Settings" - "Repositories".

In the "Download from" listbox, select "Main Server".

I can confirm the bug and it's solution, too.
I guess there are a lot of german users, so this should be probably more important.
