Bug#154670: Bug #154670: possible workaround to upgrade to woody from cd
Nicholas Weininger's workaround did not work for me, but something
I was using the official 3.0 cd set, upgrading from 2.2r7.
When I followed the release notes, using apt from dselect, I got:
E: Internal error, could not perform immediate configuration
I didn't record everything I did to work round this, but the steps
which seemed to make progress were:
apt-get install apt
apt-get install dpkg
apt-get install perl
apt-get install debconf
Between the above commands, successively, I tried to use dselect
again, but until the last I got either the error above or
E: Internal Error, couldn't configure a pre-depend
After the four commands I could use dselect, though I think it took
two attempts before everything was installed.
It would be helpful if the release notes on the web
(and parallels) could be updated with a good workaround.
