Right, I have the same problem. And that's probabily because if you take a
look at /usr/lib/util-vserver/distributions/ you will see that the highest
Fedora Core distribution there is f9. Each distribution has a separate
directory, and since directory for f10 is missing there I guess there is
no way to build f10 guest unless there is a way to add this distribution
manually somehow. And that would also be true for other distributions as
well. Where can we possible find these other distributions that we could
