I had an older version of Ubuntu installed. To upgrade I replaced /etc/sources.list with one from another machine running 10.04.

I then ran:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

The upgrade was successful and I am now running 10.04. I was also able to install packages. However today when installing any packages I am getting the following error:

E: Internal Error, Could not perform immediate configuration (2) on util-linux

Any ideas what could be wrong?

@jigar: so when you first copied over the /etc/sources.list the OS was an older version than 10.04? If so, why not just run dist-upgrade? –  fightermagethief May 30 '11 at 12:11
    
@bboy Yes It was older version and I copied sources.list from 10.4, because update-release wasn't doing job. upgrade is no longer supported with jaunty some message was there something like this. you want me to run dist-upgrade now ? –  Jigar Joshi May 30 '11 at 12:13
    
@jigar: not sure, I have had problems on dist-upgrade when things get convoluted though. Maybe you could apt-get clean or apt-get autoclean, command is something like that to clear what you have cached, and then update and upgrade again. –  fightermagethief May 30 '11 at 12:23
