Re: Known Lucid Lynx issues/bugs with workarounds
If you have both xubuntu-desktop and ubuntu desktop installed then the upgrade from Karmic may fail with the message
This is a bug in upgrade manager caused by a conflict in audio library requirements.
Could not calculate the upgrade
An unresolvable problem occurred while calculating the upgrade:
The package 'ubuntu-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.
The bug may also be triggered if other additional desktop combinations are present.
The Workaround is to uninstall extra desktops - then upgrade - then reinstall extra desktops.
UPDATE: This bug now seems to be fixed.
