Forgive me if this is a stupid question or an inapproptiate place to ask.

This is my first time attempting to download source by means of bazaar (launchpad).

Regardless of the package or branch... I always get an error like the following:

bzr: ERROR: Revision {} not present in "Graph(StackedParentsProvider(bzrlib.repository._LazyListJoin(([CachingParentsProvider(None)], []))))".

I have looked all over and cannot find an answer. What does this mean? How can I resolve it?

Many thanks.


Ubuntu 12.10 running BZR-2.6.0
Commands include but are not limited to:

bzr branch lp:ubuntu/quantal-proposed/ubiquity
bzr branch lp:ubuntu/quantal/ubiquity
bzr branch lp:ubuntu/quantal/ubiquity-slideshow-ubuntu
bzr branch lp:nano (just to test)
bzr branch lp:ubuntu/quantal/transmission (just to test)

which project? What's the full command you're using? Which OS? – Sathya Dec 6 '12 at 2:56
question updated as requested. thank you. – beanaroo Dec 6 '12 at 3:29

I got the same error only for lp:ubuntu/quantal-proposed/ubiquity and lp:ubuntu/quantal/transmission, all the others worked for me.

I think something is wrong with the branches that cannot be fetched this way and you should ask whoever gave you the URLs to double-check if they are really supposed to be working.
