View Full Version : [ubuntu] Installing 11.04 fails, asks me to report a bug but won't let me

April 29th, 2011, 05:12 PM
I have just tried to update from 10.10 to 11.04 on a Dell Dimension 5000. The installer stopped at "Setting new software channels" and a popup appeared with:

Invalid package information
After your package information was updated the essential package 'ubuntu-minimal' can not be found anymore.
This indicates a serious error, please report this bug against the 'update-manager' package and include the files in /var/log/dist-upgrade/ in the bug report.

When I ran 'ubuntu-bug update-manager' it gives the message:

The problem cannot be reported: This is not a genuine Ubuntu package
This is strange. 10.10 was fully up to date and working fine before I started I always use the update manager.

So, is there another way to report the bug?

And does it look as though I have some problems in there somewhere with 10.10 that I need to deal with?

There have already been reported a lot of bugs against update manager, so I don't think that you need in this case, but thanks for considering! This is what brings Ubuntu forward.

I would just do a clean install of 10.10 or 11.04 to solve the problem.

Will do. Thanks.
