APT bug in the Maverick Meerkat: Whatever you do, don't install/upgrade any packages!


https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...pt/+bug/625676

Again: Please wait for an update to APT to be released and build the update from source. I don't want you to face the same fate as me.

Edit: If you don't want to build from source, look on http://packages.ubuntu.com/ for the 'apt' package and install via GDebi.

Isn't Maverick Meerkat still in alpha/beta stage?

Ouch infinite loop, :P

No problems on Debian sid

$ apt-cache policy apt
apt:
Installed: 0.8.0
Candidate: 0.8.0
Version table:
*** 0.8.0 0
500 http://mirrors.kernel.org/debian/ sid/main i386 Packages

You know, that was my bug report. I got it when APT tried to install the libdbi0 package, essentially freezing without consuming any CPU -- definitely something an infinite loop would do.

FYI, here is my Sid setting:

Code:

deb http://cdn.debian.net/debian/ unstable main contrib non-free
deb-src http://cdn.debian.net/debian/ unstable main contrib non-free
BTW, I was wondering if Ubuntu has such geo IP feature? Anybody knows?

thanks
