I started upgrade from Ubuntu 12.04 to Ubuntu 12.10 x64. All of a sudden, the upgrade process stops due to
extra.ubuntu.com being unreachable. Any attempts to resume the process didn't give any results. The attempts were as follows:
1. sudo apt-get -f install 2. sudo dpkg --configure -a 3. sudo rm -rf /var/lib/apt/lists sudo apt-get clean sudo apt-get autoremove sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
In all cases, the process
dpkg --config libc6:amd64 stopped working due to too many errors, because 13 packages have wrong versions (below than required) and such files cannot be configured and thus upgraded. Each attempt to upgrade them caused the stop of dpkg configuration process due to broken dependencies. Synaptic doesn't help as well as it runs the same upgrade process.
Is there any way to remove such broken dependencies?
At the moment the system shows that this is Ubuntu 12.10. If I run
sudo dpkg --configure -a I get as result many pages with error messages, but the last part is as follows:
I realized that I didn't put the essential part of the log which states the fact that all such modules cannot be configured as because broken dependencies - packages, aforementioned packages depend on have old versions, from Ubuntu 12.04.
I added the list in the log as I don't know how better place each package name on a string.
