I think my upgrade from 10.04 to 10.10 got corrupted. The update manager got half way through upgrading the system and then complained about some dependency. I forgot I hadn't closed the update manager and ran synaptic with it still open to update some packages. In any case I think the system got in a mess as


cat /etc/issuegives

Ubuntu 10.10 \n \l

but all the sources in
/etc/apt/sources.list refer to lucid (see below)! Am i right to think this looks like one big mess? What should I do?

The machine has been upgraded at least from 9.10. Have you thought of a fresh install, plain and simple?

I thought about it as I've seen it mentioned as the answer to other people's problems. I'm not quite sure what it involves. Presumably it leaves all my data intact. What about my configuration files? Also my machine is not vanilla Ubuntu. It is a mythbuntu box so I'm not sure if this has any bearing on what I should do.

Thanks for the input,
John.

Thanks for the link. This looks like quite a lot of effort. Maybe I'm going to have to do it anyway. For the moment I've justed edited all my sources.list files and changed lucid to maverick. This seemed to fix the some of the problems I've been having. I'm not sure all have gone away though.

Thanks,
John.
