    That seems a bit much to me. Cant seem to pinpoint why it's come to this conclusion (in the package changelogs) - any pointers?
    Quit using Update Mangler and use some thing that will give you some information.

    I like a combination of apt-get and synaptic. I use apt for updating and upgrading and synaptic to tell me what the held back packages are going to do.

    If it wants to remove a lot of stuff leave it a lone. Remember to breath. The world will not end if those packages sit there for a month.

    I'm not posting out of impatience, I'm posting because I've never known the archive to be confused for this long. apt-get doesn't give me enough information, and I find synaptic horrible, but fair point in that there is more to find out.

    aptitude does list the conflicts more explicitly:

    The following packages are BROKEN:
    libparted1.8-12 update-notifier
    The following packages will be REMOVED:
    devicekit-disks{a} dmraid{u} kpartx{u} libdmraid1.0.0.rc16{u}
    ---
    The following packages have unmet dependencies:
    update-notifier: Depends: update-notifier-common (= 0.96) but 0.98 is to be installed.
    libparted1.8-12: Conflicts: libparted0 but 2.2-1ubuntu2 is to be installed.

    If this kind of archive inconsistency is more common than I've experienced then that's fine, just looking for some advice is all.

    Ah, I see said the blind man as he picked up his hammer and saw.

    Welcome to testing pre-release OS'.

    This is not really inconsistency. It is more that there are a lot of packages to get into the repo and some are ready before others. Change is rapid and these things are going to happen regularly.

    This does not happen on stable releases basically because they are stable. We are unstable here and no I don't just mean the OS.

    There is a problem with libparted1.8-12, its been replaced with libparted0. You should go to synaptic and install libparted0, this will remove libparted1.8.

    So will the Beta 1 installer have libparted0 or libparted1.8 ?

    Thanks! Once I did this, synaptic was able to upgrade the rest of my system normally. I was a bit freaked out by the removal of devicekit-disks, but I gather that's being replaced by udisks, is that right?

    I'm trying to follow this. So, once I've installed Lucid Beta 1, is it okay to go to update manager in system>admin>update manager and download software updates there?
