    Angry An unresolvable problem occurred while calculating the upgrade...

    I'm getting this error on my 10.04 machine in Update Manager and every search I've come up with doesn't fix it. I've spent 4 hours fighting with Ubuntu to try to fix this, any ideas?

    An unresolvable problem occurred while calculating the upgrade.


    Please report this bug against the 'update-manager' package and include the following error message:
    'E:Error, pkgProblemResolver::Resolve generated breaks, this may be caused by held packages.'

    What is the output when you run

    Code:
    sudo apt-get upgrade

    This will give more useful output.
    Are you trying to upgrade the distro to a newer version or just upgrade the packages?

    sandy@sandy-laptop:~$ sudo apt-get upgrade
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    The following packages have been kept back:
    transmission-common transmission-gtk
    0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 2 not upgraded.

    I'm just trying to update the packages.

    Try to remove transmission packages, then re-install them:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get remove ^transmission
    sudo apt-get install transmission

    There is more information on "kept-back" packages and how to upgrade them with aptitude here.
