No where did he say there was a Virtualbox issue.
Well he did, in passing, and he could run it natively. (OP - install
virtualbox-ose (open, but lacks a couple features, Sun's is also
available, probably in the medibuntu or restricted repositories if you
are willing to enable those - you definitely don't need to run a
non-native binary. Specifically that isn't the problem, and you might
have issued the two problems as separate posts. NoOp gave one
solution, but ultimately it is an issue with aptitude and other
related processes doing the upgrade. One thing, when you went to 8.10
was that the output of "update-manager -d"? i.e., the same process
repeated from 8.10 to 9.04, the same upgrade steps?)
Note - I rarely use synaptic, but that's experience and background.
aptitude from the command line does most of what I need. Synaptic is
great for locating stuff you might not otherwise be aware of, but
there are aptitude & apt-get equivalents (aptitude search/show,
apt-file or wajig (to identify a file you may or may not have and you
want to know basically what package it belongs to, stuff like that.)
Synaptic's main advantage is centralization and ease of use.
Virtualbox is not at all related to the main issue, of course.
thanks for letting me change the magnetic patterns on your hard disk.
