Bug Description

Binary package hint: update-manager

I ran into an issue with update-manager as the hosting company was using an unsupported kernel.

I was trying to get from 8.04 to 8.10 to 9.04 to 9.10, but I had to stop at 8.10 as the kernel 2.6.9 was not upgradeable and that resulted in the upgrade to 9.04 to fail.

A poster recommended to report this feature suggestion here.

Here is the full story including the logs, kernel version, etc.:
