rwwhrm, you're not the first person I've seen with that error today.02:01
rwwakgraner: if you're around and on the computer that was getting that bug, can you check whether Proposed Updates are enabled? (System -> Administration -> Software Sources -> Updates; is Pre-released updates (lucid-proposed) checked?)02:15
akgranerrww -  Long term support releases only02:17
rwwakgraner: sorry, I mean the bottom checkbox in the first section on that tab02:18
rwweep, the third one02:18
* rww isn't good at GUI, sorry :(02:18
akgranernope not checked02:19
rwwakgraner: hrm. can you pastebin the output of "apt-cache policy software-center"?02:19
akgranerbut I pull my updates from our local mirror  - so I'll need to see what is going there02:19
akgranersure one sec02:20
rwwthanks :)02:20
rwwalrighty, yup, you pulled down the proposed version, and I'm getting the same error when I upgrade to that version02:23
akgranerrww, I do I put it back like it was then :-(02:29
rwwakgraner: would you like command-line or GUI instructions?02:30
akgranercommand line02:30
akgranerI don't feel like clicking the mouse - I am being lazy :-) b/c I left it on my desk...02:31
rwwsudo apt-get install software-center=2.0.502:31
rww(the = sign meaning "exactly this version", and 2.0.5 being the version in lucid-updates)02:32
akgraneroh cool02:33
rwwin the meantime, I merged your bug report and another one that came in earlier, tagged it appropriately, and just asked #ubuntu-bugs to mark it Triaged :)02:33
akgranerhey thanks!02:34
akgranerwoo hoo - software center is working now :-)02:34
akgranerok so now tell me how would I have used the GUI - admin - software sources or admin-synaptic-package-manager or neither?02:36
IdleOnehmm software center has come a long way since I last looked at it02:36
akgranerwell system  - admin then....02:37
rwwakgraner: System -> Administration -> Synaptic Package Manager, search and find software-center, click it, Package -> Force Version, and select 2.0.5 in the window that appears, then Apply02:37
akgraneroh cool :-)02:38
akgranerIdleOne, it's pretty nifty   - I really like it02:38
IdleOneI still prefer CLI to install packages but when I am searching for something and have no clue I use Synaptic02:39
IdleOneI do like how SC actually has screen shots02:39
akgranerrww, did you have proposed selected?02:40
rwwakgraner: I enabled it to test this; I don't usually have it selected.02:41
akgranerahh ok...02:41
IdleOneOh the History in SC is nice02:44
IdleOnethis is not really project related :/02:45
akgranerit's ubuntu related :-)02:49
elkyrww, nice spot06:08

AlanBellthe -ie team have come up with an interesting idea https://wiki.ubuntu.com/IrishTeam/ProfileOfTheDay16:10
AlanBellwe are giving the same idea a go in -uk, but with a bit of a twist https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UKTeam/ProfileRoulette16:10
AlanBellit is a little bit of a game to encourage people to do nice wiki pages, and to leave testimonials16:11
