View Full Version : [ubuntu] The problem cannot be reported: This is not a genuine Ubuntu package

I can't get firefox 3.6 to act right, 3.7 won't show up, so what the hell? Yes I made some few changes, but what did I do to cause this message in Apport? Can't even report a bug in the proper manner. You guys at canonical are really disturbing me. I'm not that smart to break ubuntu.

Calm down! Are you using Karmic or Lucid or something else?

This is not a genuine Ubuntu package

That's easy to answer: It's 3.5.8 in the Karmic repos. If you're referring to 3.7 then almost certainly you're dealing with 3rd-party repositories or manual binary/source downloads. In that case yelling at Canonical most probably won't help, because, hey, you're not using the package they provided.
