Bug Description

Binary package hint: update-manager

Just upgraded a machine from lucid through maverick to natty, using a local mirror.

The lucid->maverick upgrade added extras.ubuntu.com

The maverick->natty upgrade then didn't offer to rewrite sources.list, and assumed extras.ubuntu.com was the Ubuntu mirror. With only extras in th enew sources.list, it then failed because ubuntu-minimal was not available.

Turned out to be trivial to fix (I think). I wish this part of the test suite wasn't all disabled...
