Bug Description

I receive this message:

"Could not calculate the upgrade
I have run apt-get An unresolvable problem occurred while calculating the upgrade:
E:Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages."

I have run apt-get install -f a number of times but still get the message above.
I cannot identify the broken package(s) to remove them.
Should I wait for official release or can this be solved?

This may have been a temporary issue with the archive, could you please try upgrading again and report back? Thanks in advance.

Steve Langasek (vorlon) wrote :

You appear to have unofficial packages of the X drivers installed on your system, which prevents apt from calculating an upgrade path because the packages you have installed are newer than the versions in precise, but don't use the same X ABI as precise.

This is due to the use of the ppa https://launchpad.net/~oibaf/+archive/graphics-drivers on your system.

You will either need to manually mark this ppa for use during the dist-upgrade in the update-manager config, or manually downgrade to the official Ubuntu versions of these video driver packages (xserver-xorg-video-intel, xserver-xorg-video-ati, xserver-xorg-video-radeon) and then upgrade them again after doing the dist-upgrade.

I have purged the PPA https://launchpad.net/~oibaf/+archive/graphics-drivers using ppa-purge and am currently running the upgrade to 12.04.
I will report success or failure on completion (some hours due to slow ADSL line).

my bug (https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/update-manager/+bug/989235) is marked as a duplicate of this...
But I have no solution yet.
The above step has no effect for me:

Updating packages lists
PPA to be removed: https://launchpad.net/~oibaf/+archive/graphics-drivers ppa
Warning: Could not find package list for PPA:
https://launchpad.net/~oibaf/+archive/graphics-drivers ppa

Updating still fails.

Can you please give me a hint *how* I can identify the issue on my system? Thx

PS: @Tim: did it work for you?

Hello,
Removing oibaf ppa works in proper way:
Ubuntu upgrades without any other issues.
Thank you very much!
