Description Dirk Wiesenthal univentionstaff 2013-04-15 12:38:25 CEST
The new resolver is too strict at the moment:
apt-get install $package
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 $package : Depends: $package2 but it is not going to be installed
E: Broken packages

install, remove, broken = package_manager.mark([package]) # expected: [], [], [package]
  File "/usr/lib/pymodules/python2.6/univention/lib/package_manager.py", line 525, in mark
  File "/usr/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/apt/cache.py", line 561, in resolve
SystemError: E:Probleme können nicht korrigiert werden, Sie haben zurückgehaltene defekte Pakete.

One needs to catch the system error and call progress_state.error(). If it is not possible to determine the broken package, mark all passed packages as broken.

Regression introduced with Bug#30279

*** Bug 31230 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Comment 3 Dirk Wiesenthal univentionstaff 2013-04-29 17:14:13 CEST
Fixed in (3.1-2):
  univention-lib 2.0.27-1.129.201304291705
and (3.1-1):
  univention-lib 2.0.26-2.128.201304291703

Marking all passed packages as broken when fixer.resolve() raises an error. The concrete package cannot be identified any more as the resolve() uses the C-lib.

Changelog updated, YAML created

removed everything from template 15_ucs-online-version.list, added "deb ucs_3.1-0-ucs3.1-2/all/" to sources.list

tried to install a package with univention-add-app
-> univention-add-app ucc univention-virtual-machine-manager-daemon

got Traceback with ucs3.1-1
Traceback (most recent call last):
SystemError: E:Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

and a error message with errata3.1-1|ucs3.1-2
E:Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.
E:Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.
univention-virtual-machine-manager-daemon: Untrusted origin
univention-virtual-machine-manager-daemon: Untrusted origin
univention-virtual-machine-manager-daemon: Failed to install
