View Full Version : [ubuntu] Error when upgrading

I tried to upgrade to 10.04, but did not succeed. Error: You have held broken packages. Can anyone tell me how to solve this problem?

It is very likely that a clean install would solve the problem.

Otherwise you could try the following on a newly booted machine:

sudo apt-get clean

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get upgrade

It would be helpful to see any terminal output of:

sudo apt-get -f install

and also:

sudo dpkg --configure -a
