apt does not configure Pre-Depends: before depending package
Status in apt package in Ubuntu:
Status in ubuntu-release-upgrader package in Ubuntu:
Status in apt source package in Trusty:
Status in apt source package in Wily:
Status in apt source package in Xenial:
Status in ubuntu-release-upgrader source package in Xenial:
Happened during upgrade to 16.04, don't know any more details.
Fix: https://anonscm.debian.org/cgit/apt/apt.git/commit/?id=c75e60eb (applied in Xenial last week)
- Install clean wily amd64 desktop + install libgcrypt20:i386
- change apt sources to xenial, apt-get dist-upgrade
- with current apt, upgrade will often fail because systemd expects a configure libgcrypt20, or util-linux expects a configured libudev1 or similar, but these packages aren't configured.
- with the fixed apt, the upgrade should run smoothly.
Regression potential: Any bug here might potentially break package
installation or upgrades completely. That said, the fix is quite
obvious and has been in production in xenial for a week. Testing this
SRU should include several dist-upgrades as well as some normal
package installs in trusty/wily.
