    8.04 upgrade difficulty

    Im trying to upgrade to 8.04 but the update tool stops part way through and says....

    Failed to fetch Unable to find expected entry partner/binary-powerpc/Packages in Meta-index file (malformed Release file?)

    Can anyone help?

    Re: 8.04 upgrade difficulty

    When I upgraded from an Gutsy to Hardy RC, I manually edited my /etc/apt/sources.list file from the details here:

    I then did
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get upgrade
    sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
    and it seemed to go ok. I did notice that afterwards, in my Sources gui, that these "ubuntu-ports" appeared in my third-party tabs, and I made sure to UNcheck the ones in the main Ubuntu source tabs, as they point to the original archives.

    Maybe this will work...
