    Internal Error, Could not perform immediate configuration (2) on libc6

    last week i came across this error, like hitting a wall with mach 10, while performing a dist-upgrade from gutsy to intrepid.

    after serious investigations i learned, that this was caused by apt due to cyclic dependencies. or what ever this is called...
    I recognized it would be useful to post the information on ubuntuforums!

    the one and only solution i found, is following this:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get remove libc6-dev
    sudo apt-get -d install libc6
    cd /var/cache/apt/archives
    sudo dpkg --force-depends --install libc6_2.8~20080505-0ubuntu7_i386.deb findutils_4.4.0-2ubuntu3_i386.deb
    sudo apt-get -f install
    sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
    (adapt .deb packages to your needs)
    i suggest not to apply,
    Code:
    sudo apt-get clean
    as suggested on
    http://www.x47.dk/2009/01/ubuntu-server-6-8.html
    because this wipes your /var/cache/apt/archives, and on slow connections you seriously won't! that after collecting ~700MB packages.

    I don't think you can jump or skip a release. You should have gone from gutsy -> hardy -> intrepid.
    In the world of Linux, who needs Windows and Gates...

    Got most of my golden beans at an auction on eBay (with a couple of free drinks).

    dist-upgrade is working atm... i am eager to experience the result.
    luckily, this box is not vital, so why stop an experiment?

    i am going to publish any error reports here. if no problem arises, then all went ok.

    after a third ubuntuuser confirms the solution, i view above code as a working way to untie the interdependencies between libc6 and findutils.

    Following upgrade instructions at

    http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/upgrading

    I got this error while running

    sudo apt-get install update-manager-core

    The first apt-get install command failed for me with the same error, but I went ahead to installing the debian package (in other words, started with line 3) and got update-manager-core installed.

    Thanks!
