marky_Hi Ubuntu Studio folks. I wonder if someone might be able to offer me some advice: I'm trying to upgrade from 22.04 to 22.10 (and then on to 23.04). but, when i run `do-release-upgrade -m desktop` i get `Could not determine the upgrade An unresolvable problem occurred while calculating the upgrade.`  whilst /var/log/dist-upgrade/main.log reports ERROR Dist-upgrade failed: 'The package 16:14
marky_'ubuntustudio-desktop-core' is marked for removal but it is in the removal deny list.'16:14
marky_i've tried various angles at exploring package installation and searching for error terms and I can't find anything that seems to relate to my system, nor clues about how to investigate this further16:15
marky_all thoughts and insight most gratefully received16:15
tomreynmarky_: what does    apt list ubuntustudio-desktop-core   print?16:20
tomreyn(just the one relevant line please)16:20
marky_ubuntustudio-desktop-core/now 0.210 amd64 [installed,local]16:20
marky_+=thank you16:20
Eickmeyer[m]Means it wasn't installed from the repositories bit downloaded and installed locally16:32
Eickmeyermarky_: ubuntustudio-desktop-core doesn't exist in 22.04, so remove it. This is a sign that you in-place upgraded from 20.04, despite THE RELEASE NOTES TELLING YOU OTHERWISE. NO SUPPORT IS PROVIDED.16:41
EickmeyerRead the topic please.16:42
EickmeyerIn-place upgrades are NOT supported from 20.04 to later releases for this very reason. We can't support breakages that happen.16:43
marky_eeek; thanks Eickmeyer, i can see that that may well have happened, and i may not have properly read release-notes in the past16:55
marky_I'll have an explore and see what i can do with regard to removing ubuntustudio-desktop-core and evaluating upgrades16:56
Eickmeyermarky_: Just as a warning, 22.10 goes EOL on Thursday, so your time is a bit limited.16:56
marky_indeed, i had realised this, hence revisiting this today (having failed and puzzled and given up once)16:57
marky_I only want to upgrade off LTS if i can double upgrade via 22.10 to 23.0416:57
EickmeyerYou may have to back-up your home directory and reinstall if it takes too much time to do the upgrade (as was advised for 20.04 => 22.04).16:58
marky_i keep /home et al on separate partitions, with backups, so a fresh install of 23.04 isn't a bad option for me (just setup & config faff and so on); i'll keep it in mind16:59
marky_many thanks for the advice17:01
EickmeyerQuite welcome.17:01
