Commercial/partner repository

    * The "commercial" repository on archive.canonical.com has been renamed
to "partner". If you upgrade directly from an earlier release to Ubuntu 7.10
using the documented upgrade procedure, then this will be handled
automatically. However, if you upgraded via the beta and/or manually, you
will need to edit /etc/apt/sources.list by hand. The correct syntax is:

deb http://archive.canonical.com/ gutsy partner

as others has allready suggested, deactivate pre-upgrading and reactivate
