I just upgraded my Ubuntu 11.10 to 12.04 after the announcement of the final release of Ubuntu 12.04. The upgrade process went fine.

But now when I run the update manager it asks for a partial upgrade. But the funny thing is it installs 84 new packages in installation step, remove all the 84 packages in the cleaning step!!!

This is happening recursively(Every time I launch the update manager). Please can you suggest something?

Logs can be found in the launchpad bug page.

I would suggest performing the partial upgrade, since (likely during install) a part of the install process went wrong, then wait until packages get updated and upgrade then.

Or you could perform a fresh install, which I find to produce less problems than a distribution upgrade, and see if the problem persists.

Thanks for the answer. I did what you told. But it is not a kind of ending upgrade. Every time it pops up when I run the update manager. It is really annoying. –  udinnet Apr 28 '12 at 11:47
