    Could not calculate the upgrade...black listed

    Hi very new user of Ubuntu.

    Only tried 7.10 for a while. Was waiting for the 8.04 release to fix the Wireless driver for the Intel PRO/Wireless 4965 AG or AGN Network card.

    Tried upgrading to 8.04, but get the "Could not calculate the upgrade" error. I don't think that I did any of those things: 1. upgrading to a pre-release version of Ubuntu; 2. Running the current release version of Ubuntu; or 3. unofficial software packages not provided by Ubuntu.

    My laptop is a Dell XPS M1330. The last few lines in the Main.log attached:

    2008-05-09 23:15:32,604 DEBUG Marking 'ubuntu-desktop' for upgrade
    2008-05-09 23:15:32,671 DEBUG The package 'nvidia-glx-new' is marked for removal but it's in the removal blacklist
    2008-05-09 23:20:57,478 ERROR Dist-upgrade failed: 'An essential package would have to be removed'

    Looks like I'm on the black list...is there a bug/fix report for this?
    (apt.log file was too big 134kb to upload as .txt)
