Hello Ubuntu developers,
It seems there was something in the air today and another problem
occurred with the proposed updates for 10.04 (lucid).
Around 18:00 UTC on June 6, a version of multipath-tools was exposed
in lucid-proposed that was greater than the version in the development
release. This version was deleted from lucid-proposed and updates
propagated to the main archive by 00:00 UTC June 7.
That means, if you have proposed updates enabled on 10.04 LTS (lucid),
and you have multipath-tools installed, it might have pulled in a version
of multipath-tools that will not be upgraded on any release upgrades
to 10.10 (maverick).
To check this, please run
dpkg -l multipath-tools | grep '^ii.*0.4.8-14ubuntu11.1'
If you have this version, you can downgrade to the previous version with:
sudo apt-get install multipath-tools=0.4.8-14ubuntu4
Efforts are under way to make sure the SRU helper scripts warn us before
allowing such a problematic version into *-proposed in the future.
Please accept my apologies for any inconvenience, and thanks to those
who pointed it out and helped to resolve the matter.
