    Not all updates can be installed

    I'm running Ubuntu 10.04, and I had some trouble with an old Drupal installation, so I ran the script below in an effort to revert PHP back to version 5.2. The script below didn't work for me, and now Update Manager gives me the message "Not all updates can be installed", presumably because the script changed the repository for some of the software from lucid to karmic. How do I get it back?
    Thanks.

    Script which "broke" Update Manager:

    if [ "$(whoami &2>/dev/null)" != "root" ] && [ "$(id -un &2>/dev/null)" != "root" ] ; then
    echo " NO!

    Error: You must be root to run this script.

    sudo su

    exit 1
    fi
    echo " OK";


    #install aptitude before, if you don`t have it:
    apt-get update
    apt-get install aptitude
    # or if you prefer apt-get use:
    # alias aptitude='apt-get'

    # finish all apt-problems:
    aptitude update
    aptitude -f install
    #apt-get -f install


    # remove all your existing PHP packages. You can list them with dpkg -l| grep php
    PHPLIST=$(for i in $(dpkg -l | grep php|awk '{ print $2 }' ); do echo $i; done)
    echo these pachets will be removed: $PHPLIST
    # you need not to purge, if you have upgraded from karmic:
    aptitude remove $PHPLIST
    # on a fresh install, you need purge:
    # aptitude remove --purge $PHPLIST


    #Create a file each in /etc/apt/preferences.d like this (call it for example /etc/apt/preferences.d/php5_2);
    #
    #Package: php5
    #Pin: release a=karmic
    #Pin-Priority: 991
    #
    #The big problem is that wildcards don't work, so you will need one such stanza for each PHP package you want to pull from karmic:

    echo ''>/etc/apt/preferences.d/php5_2
    for i in $PHPLIST ; do echo "Package: $i
    Pin: release a=karmic

    # duplicate your existing sources.list replacing lucid with karmic and save it in sources.list.d:
    #sed s/lucid/karmic/g /etc/apt/sources.list | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/karmic.list

    # better exactly only the needed sources, cause otherwise you can get a cachsize problem:

    Re: Not all updates can be installed

    Problem is your sources.list got changed from lucid to karmic, you just want to change your sources.list back again.

    Many ways to do it, tons of guides on it, just to explain real quick (bed time!) you will want to change all the 'karmic' to 'lucid' in the following section which is inside your /etc/apt/sources.list and that should fix it.

    Code:
    deb http://de.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ karmic main restricted
    deb-src http://de.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ karmic main restricted
    
    deb http://de.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ karmic-updates main restricted
    deb-src http://de.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ karmic-updates main restricted

    Re: Not all updates can be installed

    Good to know about /etc/apt/sources.list, thanks, but I found that sources.list was unmodified. The script just created the files /etc/apt/preferences.d/php5_2 and /etc/apt/sources.list.d/karmic.list, both of which I deleted, ran aptitude update, problem solved.
