Re: Potato to Woody upgrade failure
Heres the deal.
I'm using Potato.
I have a Woody CD set.
1) Comment out lines in /etc/apt/sources.list
2) apt-cdrom add (for each of the Woody CD's)
3) apt-get update
4) apt-get dist-upgrade
At which point I got the message:
E: Internal Error, couldn't configure a pre-depend
5) apt-get upgrade
6) apt-get dist-upgrade
Got the same pre-depend error.
Where do I go from here?
Do you Yahoo!?
The New Yahoo! Search - Faster. Easier. Bingo.
I had the same problem using the woody CD's. I changed the
sources.list to use the http method instead of the CD's and
the update and dist-upgrade worked without any problems. The
upgrade instructions first recommended using
apt-get install dpkg apt debconf
which installs these three package updates along with several
megabytes worth of other packages. Then use dist-upgrade.
The woody release notes give all the details.
