Bug Description

Ubuntu 7.10 is going EOL this April 19th.

When performing distribution upgrade tests (sudo do-release-upgrade) I noticed if the upgrade is not confirmed after the first packages calculation, the source.list file is no restored to its original state and it has the target distribution repositories instead (Hardy's instead of Gutsy's). This leaves the system in a state that can not be reversd trivially (unless running it under a VM, and having a snapshot like I had).

Sorry your report got unattended. I believe update-manager now restores the original sources.list if it fails. Please feel free to reopen by marking as "new" if the problem is still present with current versions of update-manager.

Changed in update-manager-core (Ubuntu):
status: New → Invalid
affects: update-manager-core (Ubuntu) → update-manager (Ubuntu)
