9.10 -> 10.04: ubuntu-netbook metapackage missing in list of known meta-packages

Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
update-manager (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: update-manager

The ubuntu-netbook edition is missing from the list of known meta-packages. This has the effect
that a upgrade will still work but installs ubuntu-desktop (in addition to upgrading ubuntu-netbook).

1. use karmic netbook edition
2. run update-manager
3. follow the steps until the final confirmation window
4 verify that in the details screen of the upgrade changes "ubuntu-desktop" gets installed
5. cancel

6. run "update-manager --proposed"
7. repeat 3
8. verify that this time "ubuntu-desktop" is not marked for install

I have reproduced the problem with update-manager 1:0.134.8 and have verified that the version of update-manager in proposed, 1:0.134.9, fixes the issue. I do not see any regressions when performing upgrades or updating packages with the version of update-manager in -proposed.

Marking verification-done.

  * DistUpgrade/DistUpgrade.cfg:
    - add ubuntu-netbook-remix and ubuntu-netbook to valid
      meta-packages to ensure clean transition for the rename
      of ubuntu-netbook-remix to ubuntu-netbook (LP: #574279)
  * DistUpgrade/DistUpgradeCache.py:
    - Check if the metapkg is actually upgradable. This covers
      the case of ubuntu-netbook-remix that may no longer be
      available to a user if "universe" is disabled (LP: #574279)
  * DistUpgrade/DistUpgradeQuirks.py:
    - Add workaround for nm-applet dying during the upgrade. At
      the start up of the update we take it down in a controlled
      way (LP: #456468)
    - add workaround for wine upgrade failure (LP: #571999)
    - help the upgrade if both ubuntu-desktop and xubuntu-desktop
      are installed (LP: #571743)
