Bug Description

Binary package hint: update-manager

Came across this while poking around (trying to solve a boot issue with x-server 1.9)
I don't know python at all, but it just looked wrong

File: /usr/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/DistUpgrade/
Lines (on my system): 195 - 204

  # then synaptic
  elif os.path.exists(SYNAPTIC_CONF_FILE):
    cnd = apt_pkg.Configuration()
    apt_pkg.read_config_file(cnf, SYNAPTIC_CONF_FILE)
    use_proxy = cnf.find_b("Synaptic::useProxy", False)
    if use_proxy:
      proxy_host = cnf.find("Synaptic::httpProxy")
      proxy_port = str(cnf.find_i("Synaptic::httpProxyPort"))
      if proxy_host and proxy_port:
        proxy = "http://%s:%s/" % (proxy_host, proxy_port)

Notice the "cnd = apt_pkg.Configuration()"
when all other lines refer to variable "cnf"

  * UpdateManager/Core/
    - fix typo (LP: #615923)
  * UpdateManager/
    - when NM thinks we have no network, do not disable the buttons
      because for dialup users NM is frequently wrong and does not
      get that there is a network-connection (thanks to "gambs")
