View Full Version : [xubuntu] Issues installing Lucid (removal blacklist etc)

May 6th, 2010, 07:03 PM
When trying to upgrade to Lucid I get the following error message:

Could not determine the upgrade

An unresolvable problem occurred while calculating the upgrade:
The package 'xubuntu-desktop' is marked for removal but it is in the removal blacklist.

This can be caused by:
* Upgrading to a pre-release version of Ubuntu
* Running the current pre-release version of Ubuntu
* Unofficial software packages not provided by Ubuntu

If none of this applies, then please report this bug against the 'update-manager' package and include the files in /var/log/dist-upgrade/ in the bug report.

Before this I get the following two pop-ups

No valid mirror found

While scanning your repository information no mirror entry for the upgrade was found. This can happen if you run an internal mirror or if the mirror information is out of date.

Do you want to rewrite your 'sources.list' file anyway? If you choose 'Yes' here it will update all 'karmic' to 'lucid' entries.
If you select 'No' the upgrade will cancel.

Generate default sources?

After scanning your 'sources.list' no valid entry for 'karmic' was found.

Should default entries for 'lucid' be added? If you select 'No', the upgrade will cancel.

Any ideas of how I could sort things and make the install work?
