Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I am attempting to update a VPS that is running Ubuntu 10.04 on OpenVZ. I have read many posts on this site and others that state this is possible to do. However, every time I attempt to perform do-release-upgrade I get the following error:

Calculating the changes

Could not calculate the upgrade 

An unresolvable problem occurred while calculating the upgrade: 
E:Error, pkgProblemResolver::Resolve generated breaks, this may be 
caused by held packages. 

This can be caused by: 
* Upgrading to a pre-release version of Ubuntu 
* Running the current pre-release version of Ubuntu 
* Unofficial software packages not provided by Ubuntu 

After reading similar posts I have taken steps including using ppa-purge to purge custom repositories, attempting to removexserver-xorg-video-nouveau (which was not installed), attempting to re-install packages showing up as "broken," and performing apt-get clean apt-get update, apt-get upgrade, and apt-get dist-upgrade (all with no errors) before attempting do-release-upgrade with no success. What needs to be fixed seems to differ on a case-be-case basis, so my dist-upgrade/apt.log follows:
