I had this before when running update-manager -d. It seemed to work
once I'd reloaded the sources a couple of times, then ran
update-manager -d again. IIRC it took a couple of seconds for the box
to appear saying Karmic was available. Probably also worth checking if
you're using the gb mirror or the main archive; not sure if it makes
any difference but I've often found problems magically disappear when
I use the plain archive.ubuntu.com.
