I'm updating ubuntu karmic (9.04) and although I know that it is maybe 
more sensible to upgrade to Lucid I first want this problem solved.
The problem is that when installing I get the post-install errors and in 
the dpkg log I find the following lines:
2010-10-20 09:45:09 startup packages configure
2010-10-20 09:45:09 configure linux-headers-2.6.31-22-generic 
2.6.31-22.67 2.6.31-22.67
2010-10-20 09:45:09 status half-configured 
linux-headers-2.6.31-22-generic 2.6.31-22.67
2010-10-20 09:45:10 configure linux-image-2.6.31-22-generic 2.6.31-22.67 
2010-10-20 09:45:10 status half-configured linux-image-2.6.31-22-generic 
In the update log I find:
run-parts: execuring /etc/kernel/postinst.d/nvidia-common
runparts: /etc/kernel/postinst.d/nvidia-common exited with return code 10
failed to process /etc/kernel/postinst.d at 
.../linux-image- line 1002

H^aAs anybody a clue how to prevent this error and how to install this 
kernel. Which is also a re-install as uname -a gives as kernel 
2.6.31-22-generic so I don't know why update want to install this kernel.
