I don't mess with repo stuff. What is set is set by default.
This particular server is running MySQL and I have documented every step of its setup in my signature. Shouldn't be anything quirky going on that I know of.
Maybe the Quantal kernel got there because of my upgrade script which is designed to just get security updates using the following command:
The only time I have ever added a 3rd-party repo was a Minecraft server in order to get Oracle Java installed and updated on a normal basis.
aptitude safe-upgrade --assume-yes --target-release `lsb_release -cs`-security
I edited /etc/apt/sources.list and removed "us." from all entries on the MySQL server. Then did "aptitude update" and then "aptitude safe-upgrade" and it worked without error! Just as if there was nothing wrong. Didn't even need to do the fix command. Wow.
I was then able to do the "apt-get remove linux-image-3.5.0-44-generic" command without any errors and cleaned up all the old boot images (I always keep the latest two)
Being the curious sort, I then checked the Bugzilla server that was having the similar issue. I verified that it still had the issue by trying to remove an old kernel and it spit out the error I expected. I then did the "aptitude update" and "aptitude safe-upgrade" and was greeted with the familiar "quantal depends on quantal" error. At this point, I then edited the sources.list file and removed "us.", ran "aptitude update" and "aptitude safe-upgrade" but it did not fix the issue. The "apt-get install -f" also did not resolve the issue.
Still not sure what's going on but my plan of action will not change...still going to setup all new 14.04 servers and move over the data.
True but the issue was resolved by increasing the volume and file system. The packages take up a lot of room in /usr during installation so it needs a lot of breathing room to operate. When I create my 14.04 install documents, I will setup /usr to have 1GB more than I have in the past.
