    Upgraded to precise, oneiric packages still installed

    I upgraded to precise a few days ago using 'do-release-upgrade' from the command line.

    I was prompted this morning to upgrade some software and I let it run. It promptly uninstalled chrome, gimp, pidgin and a dozen other bits of software, all relying on libgtk2.0-0.

    It turns out that libgtk2.0-0 is still the oneiric version. I checked my sources.list and all my ppas. I found some entries that were still pointing to oneiric sources. I changed those entries to precise and ran apt-get update. Then I removed libgtk2.0-0. I was hoping that I would then be able to run 'apt-get install libgtk2.0-0' and got this error:

    Code:
    E: Package 'libgtk2.0-0' has no installation candidate
    However, according to http://packages.ubuntu.com/precise/libgtk2.0-0, there is a current version of libgtk2.0-0 for precise.

    For whatever reason, my computer does not know that there is a precise version of libgtk2.0-0.

    There has to be a reference to oneiric still existing somewhere on my system but I can't find it.

    Any ideas?

    The following terminal command will give you info about the version(s) available in your software sources:

    Code:
    apt-cache policy libgtk2.0-0

    Thanks for responding so fast. I ran that command and this is what it returned:

    Code:
    libgtk2.0-0:
      Installed: (none)
      Candidate: (none)
      Version table:
         2.24.10-1oneiric6~ppa 0
            100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
    It would seem that I have a ppa still pointing to an oneiric source but I can't find it. 'grep oneiric sources.list' and 'grep oneiric sources.list.d/*' return nothing.

    I'm worried you might be missing the Precise "main" repo from your software sources.

    Code:
    cat /etc/apt/sources.list
    Since you are in a state of doubt about your software sources you might find this tool useful: http://repogen.simplylinux.ch/

    Yup, that was it. Something was missing. I let the site generate a new sources.list for me and everything is installing fine now.

    Thank you!
