Hello guys,
do you have intructions of how to recover from an interrupted or broken upgrade?. So far the commands used to fix any broken packages are dpkg --configure -a and apt-get -f install. But in UCS /etc/apt/sources.list also gets affected.

Hi,

UCS has its own (better: additional) methods to work with the repositories.
There is a list of sources in the files in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/.
In some cases during a stuck upgrade I have seen that these lists are incomplete. As a result apt (aptitude, univention-install) may be unable to resolve dependencies. It seems to be a valid workaround to add the missing sources to the sources.list file until the UCS methods are working again.

Best Regards,
Dirk
