View Full Version : [SOLVED] 9.10 installation cannot complete: "Can't install 'ubuntu-desktop"

Everything in the installation worked out, except for an issue installing "ubuntu-desktop".

I received the message:

"Can't install 'ubuntu-desktop'

It was impossible to install a required package. Please report this as a bug."

I suppose I should further point out that I'm upgrading from Jaunty, not doing a clean install.

sudo apt-get install -f solved the issue.
