I've been trying to upgrade my version on Ubuntu from 9.10 to 10.04 (and eventually to the latest), but I'm having trouble with broken packages.



I've tried:




  • apt-get update

  • apt-get upgrade

  • apt-get dist-upgrade

  • dpkg --configure -a (not sure why)



I'm not sure what's relevant, so I'm going to dump what I've got:



Output from upgrade attempt:

Could not calculate the upgrade

An unresolvable problem occurred while calculating the upgrade:
E:Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

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.

I'd try removing the Gutsy CD line:
