    Question yet another update 7.10 to 8.04 error

    Greetings all!

    I have been trying to upgrade to 8.04 all day. I know the servers are slammed, so i finally managed to get an iso downloaded and burned. I md5'd it and its correct. So i tried upgrading from the cd. During the upgrade process, it gets about halfway through setting up the new repositories, then errors, saying it cannot calculate the changes. It mentions that it could be due to a pre-release upgrade to the final release, or unsupported software. None of these are the case, so why am I getting this error? Any ideas?
