Can't upgrade packages in Adept


I'm getting this when I try to do an upgrade in Adept in Kubuntu:

APT Error. Context:
Package download failed,
I wasn't able to locate file for the libvolume-id0 package. This might mean you need to manually fix this package.,

How can I manually fix this package?

Thanks, I get this: The package libvolume-id0 needs to be reinstalled, but I can't find an archive for it.

Your kubuntu is too old?

Get the latest or 8.04 first, 6.10 is not supported

Ohh sorry, I haven't updated that, I am on 8.04. It used to be that I was proud to survive an upgrade, now it is just a few button clicks.
