http://astromirror.uchicago.edu does not contain the repositories for maverick (and alo nothing for natty). You have to switch to a different server before you start the upgrade. It seems also be that the contents of http://astromirror.uchicago.edu are outdated, so you should initiate a normal upgrade first, before you do a dist-upgrade.

Thanks I finally figured that out. Now I'm getting the error "could not calculate upgrade".

Now this can be a duplicate of bug 658458 (and a dozen similar ones)

If the package xserver-xorg-video-nouveau is installed, in several cases the 10.04 to 10.10 upgrade fails with the error message

"Could not determine the upgrade
An unresolvable problem occurred while calculating the upgrade:
E:Error, pkgProblemResolver::Resolve generated breaks, this may be caused by held packages.
This can be caused by:
* Upgrading to a pre-release version of Ubuntu
* Running the current pre-release version of Ubuntu
* Unofficial software packages not provided by Ubuntu"

Several persons have reported that after removal of that package the upgrade was successful.

Try this workaround: Open a terminal and enter the command:

sudo apt-get remove xserver-xorg-video-nouveau

and try the upgrade again.

The problem that the mirror astromirror.uchicago.edu is not current is no bug but an administrative problem,
the problem that showed up later is a duplicate of bug 614993, marking it as such
