Updating repository information warning failed to read mirror file

Please make sure that package dependencies are actually correct and solve the problem, rather than hacks that do not work for everyone.I'm seriously considering switching back to plain old debian for my desktop, because every time I upgrade my ubuntu kubuntu xubuntu system something breaks, and it never did break this badly with Debian.that's ok for dumb users but not for people like me - so I will switch back to Debian.Perhaps this is a bug against pacemaker, however it illustrates a point.

I somehow did get it to upgrade now:-) From my mind: * Fixed the manual installation of mountall 2.10 by re-installing 1.0 * I did run apt-get upgrade which did seem to work: sudo apt-get upgrade Reading package lists...

Done Building dependency tree Reading state information...

On a bare-metal karmic install this worked fine, and the server has returned after remote reboot.

I can reproduce the problem and it is caused by a feature in apt that tries to ensure that all important packages gets ocnfigured immediately to minimize the risks if somethng goes wrong (pkg failure, power loss etc)= 2.11) and at the point apt tries to configure it its not ready yet and the pre-configure code fails. I would not want to change this code at this point of the release though but instead add a workaround to help apt to get it right.This bug bit me with the released version of lucid, and I don't really appreciate having to spend however many hours hacking around it to fix package dependencies.
