[Bug 643100] Re: Recent update broke dhcp

Till, do you have files in /etc/apt/sources.list.d? This is likely where
the packages sources would come from.

This bug comes from the fact that at some point (or maybe you still do)
packages were installed from the ~network-manager team trunk PPA. The
issue is in network-manager, not dhcp3, so I'm reassigning it as such.

As for a quick fix, if you're on lucid try to do the following:

sudo apt-get install network-manager=0.8-0ubuntu3 libnm-
glib2=0.8-0ubuntu3 libnm-util1=0.8-0ubuntu3 network-manager-

This should take care of downgrading the network-manager packages to the
correct versions (which don't require isc-dhcp (which should have been
available in the ppa stated above though)).

You will likely also want to run 'sudo apt-get autoclean' to make sure
your package cache contains the right things -- 0.8-0ubuntu5~nmt5~karmic
should then disappear from the output of apt-cache policy, but you will
still need to make sure the ~network-manager/trunk ppa isn't listed in
sources.list or files under sources.list.d/.

** Package changed: dhcp3 (Ubuntu) => network-manager (Ubuntu)
