Re: mintupgrade check: "pkgProblemResolver::Resolve generated breaks" – How to diagnose & fix?

Ubuntu recently backported MESA 18.0.5-0ubuntu0~16.04.1 into Xenial (on top of which Mint 18.x is based). The problem with this is that its version is superior to the one in Ubuntu Bionic (on top of which Mint 19 is based). This creates issues in the APT dependency resolver during the upgrade, resu...

Re: mintupgrade check: "pkgProblemResolver::Resolve generated breaks" – How to diagnose & fix?

Hi everyone,

We're just after finding out Ubuntu backported mesa into Xenial with a version number higher than the one in Bionic. They basically broke the upgrade path between 16.04 and 18.04 and that affects us as well. Please hold while we try to find a workaround for this problem.

Re: mintupgrade check: "pkgProblemResolver::Resolve generated breaks" – How to diagnose & fix?

Hi there,

Make sure these packages are not foreign, i.e. that they don't come from PPAs.

The quickest way to do this is to remove/disable all PPAs, and then to ask Software Sources to downgrade foreign packages.

If there aren't please paste the output of their policy, with "apt policy packagename".

Re: Trouble with 4.15.0-20 kernel

Hi tomdkat,

They're already published in the main repositories. It can take a little longer if you're using a mirror (they usually sync with the main repositories twice a day but some can take longer to update).

Re: Trouble with 4.15.0-20 kernel

Both issues are now resolved and updates were shipped to all 18.x point releases. Here's a summary of the situation. Problem #1: Starting with kernel 4.15.0-20, a new package was introduced called linux-modules-extra-4.15.0-20-generic. The update manager didn't know about it and didn't install it. O...

Re: Trouble with 4.15.0-20 kernel

If the issue is fixed for you, no need to "backshift" :)

I'm not sure why you need to upgrade elfutils and libelf-dev manually?
