Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: firefox

 
Ubuntu version;
"You are using Ubuntu 10.04 LTS - the Lucid Lynx - released in April 2010 and supported until April 2013."
Updates are done using Update Manager.
What happens;
Since installing Lucid Lynx, Firefox updates/upgrades always install what SHOULD be /usr/bin/firefox as /usr/bin/firefix.ubuntu.  Of course, the update manager then declares this error.
Solution work-around;
I learned, early on, that if I simply rename (as root) /usr/bin/firefox.ubuntu to /usr/bin/firefox , firefox then works as expected.
True, this is a simple step, but it is an added step that should not be necessary.
I have not been able to determine a cause for this, nor a solution to it other than renaming as I described above.
