    catalog will not repair

    I have just done a clean install of 12.04.2 When installing I told the installer to use the whole drive which, in theory, wiped out the existing installation. After the installation, with, as far as I could tell no errors (downloaded new iso, burned a dvd, etc. for install). Then came the updates and there were a pile of them (235 I think). Whilst doing the updates I was told that the catalog was bad and needed repairing (I will list the details below). After that I did an apt-get install -f which also failed (see below). The error references packages for oubuntu10.? although I installed 12.04.02 My suspicion is that even though I told the installer to use the entire drive, and everything was supposed to be cleaned out that might have not happened?

    Anyway, any help would be appreciated, thank you.....................

    Re: catalog will not repair [SOLVED]

    I decided to install yet again. This time I was able to install the 272 updates without a hitch. Something peculiar must have happened the first time around.
