Talking [SOLVED] Cannot continue a 'do-release-upgrade' because of dpkg error


http://pastebin.com/m3cf18a1f

Trying to get my Ubuntu server to upgrade, but it keeps getting hung up on trying to make an initrd for a kernel that's no longer installed.

Any ideas how to make this stop?

ARGH!

EDIT: Solution below!

Are you sure that kernel has been completely uninstalled? Run:
Code:
aptitude search linux-image
to find out. Their should not be any mention of the 2.6.28.10 kernel in the output. The current kernel in Ubuntu 9.10 is 2.6.31.19.32.

The kernel was a custom kernel I built myself.

SOLVED: I rebuilt the kernel, re-installed it, let the new initramfs package build a new initrd based on it, the *uninstalled* the custom kernel, and voila - everything works as it should!

Phew...
