im getting this error
Failed to fetch http://givre.cabspace.com/ubuntu/dists/edgy/main/binary-i386/Packages.bz2 Sub-process bzip2 returned an error code (2)
SOrry tu buzz in like this, but i had a running WEB/SQL/Mail server on ubuntu 6 and decided to
upgrade to 7.04 from your tutorial…and guess what…it messed up my entire system.
Fortunate enough i had a backup from my important files and i dediced to migrate to debian for more stability 🙂
So i just thought you should know, that this did not work for me .
Anyways, i`m glad you posted this here. I am also sure that if you would have a “empty” system, this might have worked 🙂
Cheers, and no offence 🙂

and with that it hits everywhere when i try to either upgrade or install software and i have no idea what to do because im new to ubuntu and i got from a live cd.
And that is why windows and max os rule the planet, and not linux. Not even the ah so userfriendly ubuntu manages to upgrade itself w/o a major hassle.
I am a rather experience unix user, and i am sick of it. If the upgrade authentication works, the dependency check fails, and if that does not fail.. there surely be something else that waste hours/days/weeks time to troubleshoot. It lacks consitency, servers change urls, authentification methods change, keys change – its a big inconsistet mess. I tried above, and i end up with the very same error message anyways.
It does not seem to care that i just did the dbg, wait and then & ctrl-c.
What now? i dont want to deal with encrytion shit – 404 errors on update servers and the like.
So far, the only linux system where this has worked flawlessly was openSUSE
again the germans are way ahead ..
sorry folks, i had a bad day. i dont mean to belittle the assistance given here.
