Fedora Installation :: Unable To Upgrade To 13

Jul 21, 2010

I burned the Fedora 13 x64 DVD, booted from it, and attempted to upgrade my Fedora 12 x64 OS. It found my previous installation than asked my what to do with my boot partition. I chose to upgrade it, rather than skip or whatever else, only to eventually be met with a message saying the partition is too small by 9M. Really ? This is a 100 MB partition. Is 100 MB now too small for a boot partition ?

Fedora Installation :: Unable To Upgrade From F7 To F9 / Sort It?

Jan 8, 2009

Who has successfully upgraded going from F7 x86_64 to F9 x86_64 using the yum approach? I have had about 0% success getting everything to work correctly doing a fresh install of F9. Everything works correctly in F7( sound, firefox/flash, networking, samba, etc ), so I figure that starting with something know to work and upgrading to F9 might be a better approach that starting with F9 and having it guess.

Fedora Installation :: Upgrade F9 - F10 - Unable To Boot ?

Jan 22, 2009

It's become a tradition since I've installed FC6 on my machine: after each Fedora upgrade, the PC hangs at reboot because of a badly make initrd !

I found this post a while ago that helped me to solve the problem by rebuilding the initrd with the right librairies in it: [url]

So for each upgrade I've done the last 2 years I had to follow again these instructions to rebuild the initrd.

I've just finished the upgrade from F9 to F10 and I faced the following friendly message:


Allright, not a surprise in fact. While rebuilding the initrd I discovered there's no more /lib/i686/nosegneg/ directory in Fedora10's initrd. Therefore I reinstalled the libm-2.9.so library as follows:


Once the initrd rebuilt, I rebooted and faced a second friendly message:


I searched for posts reporting problems with segfault in ld-2.9.so but didn't find anything. So now I'm with a successfully upgraded fedora 10 system that refuses to boot.

By the way, I've done the upgrade using the netinstall CD, all the packages have been retreived online without errors and I think I've therefore the latest versions.

How to making this F10 box to start ?

Fedora Installation :: Unable To Upgrade To 10 Due To Duplicate Labels

Jan 25, 2009

I tried upgrading from Fedora 8 to Fedora 10 using the DVD, but I ran into a few problems.After verifying the install media, it was no longer able to detect the DVD. Annoying, but I got around this by simply rebooting and then skipping the media check.The second problem happened after I tried to "upgrade an existing installation". It gives me the error "Multiple devices with label /boot detected. Devices must have unique labels in order for you system to work. Please correct this problem before upgrading".My system's working just fine, so I'm not sure why I'm getting this error. I have a RAID-1 setup, so would that be causing the error? How do I correct this problem without wiping out my system?

Fedora Installation :: Unable To Login After Fc8 - Fc10 Upgrade

Apr 20, 2009

I upgraded to fedora 10 using yum but i have a problem, the installation went fine and after rebooting i got a login screen. I typed in my user name and password and after a second it returns to the login screen. Im sure the username and password are correct. If i type in another password i get an error message. So how can i log in?

This is what i did to upgrade to Fc10:


Then i got an upgrade wizzard and selected Fedora 10 and than reboot.

In the grub menu only one kernel is present which is the Fc10 so couldn't use the old one.

I've tried to edit the kernel with single for single user that works gives me a command line but im just not experienced enough to figure out how i can use the command line to login.

I updated SElinux to selinux-policy-3.9.7-10 and selinux-policy-targeted-3.9.7-10, and touch /.autorelabel overnight, I was able to login using GDM once. And that is all. After I boot, after Ctrl+Alt+F4, I can login to terminal.

Checked disk OK on laptop, tried again, same fault.

Bought another DVD.(different die) and tried again, same fault.

Tried another laptop HD, (full install not dual boot) , same fault.

Removed partitions with fdisk, but still no luck.

Tried disk on a spare HD on my PC and it works, I get into the window allowing software selection!

Tried a "Linux Format" fc 10 disk and that works, also tried a PCLinux LXF disk which also worked.

The laptop does not report any problems at bootup and I do not not what else to try

Fedora Installation :: Unable To Upgrade F13 To F14: Error At 95% Of Disk Test

Nov 17, 2010

I'm trying to upgrade, but have this issue: usually I download the DVD iso, run checksum, burn it, test the disk, and when found ok, I run the upgrade. Now, however, I keep getting "disk not ok" at 95% of the disk test. I have downloaded and verified the iso twice, used 2 DVD's, 2 different DVD-drives, 2 different computers and keep getting this error at 95%.

Fedora Installation :: Fail Upgrade Attempt - Unable To Find Root

May 26, 2010

I am attempting to upgrade Fedora 12 to 13. I get an error screen that said root could not be found. Four options are given. Not sure exactly their wording, but two appear to allow you to cancel the other two warn that if you reinitialize you will wipe out all data.

I have a Vista partition and a Fedora partition. I've added the vista ntfs partition to fstab with no help. All of the partition use the long UUID form. I added the root location (root (hd0,5) to the upgrade menu item in grub.conf and that didn't work either.

I'm reluctant to proceed for fear of initializing the entire drive. I could live with installing Fedora 13 over the existing partitions.

Ubuntu Installation :: Unable To Upgrade From 8.04 To 10.04

I downloaded Ubuntu 10.04 Alternate CD and tried to upgrade 8.04 to 10.04. When I run upgrade (with the option "Include latest updates from the Internet?" set to "No" ) in the "Setting new software channels" it gives this error (ScreenShot attached):


An unresolvable problem occurred while calculating the upgrade:
E:Error, pkgProblemResolver::Resolve generated breaks, this may be caused by held packages.

This can be caused by:

* Upgrading to a pre-release version of Ubuntu
* Running the current pre-release version of Ubuntu

Ubuntu Installation :: Unable To Upgrade To 10.04.1

Aug 31, 2010

I'm using Ubuntu 10.04 (upgraded from 9.10) and I can't find a way to upgrade to the new 10.04.1 version.

Here are my current settings:

Ubuntu Installation :: Unable To Upgrade From 10.04 To 10.10

Apr 28, 2011

when I upgraded from 10.04 to 10.10 I lost the ability to enable effects, lost the ability to use compiz and my screen got messed up and my video card driver wasn't working forcing me to re-install it several times. Even now my system doesn't totally work how it used to in 10.04.I want to avoid that in this upgrade. I downloaded the live cd since the wire upgrade took a bunch of hours. But my concern is the graphics, I want to be able to use effects since Unity uses effects, I have unity 2d installed but it doesn't work. So somehow enabling effects is a must.

what steps do I take to make the upgrade process as smooth as possible, I've already done my app updates so my system is current, I'll disable 3rd party ppa's like before but what else? Do I have to disable my video card driver so the live cd video card driver can be installed? How do I keep my setting as is but allow for all the 11.04 goodness to be installed?Or is erasing my current Ubuntu partition and reinstalling 11.04 fresh the best option?

I just upgraded to 10.04 from 9.10. Everything seemed to go well and it looks like everything transfered over fine except my email stuff. I was using Evolution with 9.10, but it looks like none of that is on 10.04. Not too worried about the program itself, but I would like to have kept my contacts info and a few of the emails from the last couple of days.

Ubuntu Installation :: Unable To Get Grub After Upgrade

Jan 1, 2011

I started off on 9.10 and upgraded to 10.4 without any problems. However during the upgrade to 10.10 got asked about grub (see attachment 1& 2) and I think I should have ticked the other boxs but I didn't. I also got an error (see3) The 4th one I think is a different issue.On the restart it would only get to the purple screen before the login field appears. I presume I need to do something to the grub but have no idea what.My system is 64bit and a raid 1. The attachment 5 shows the partition arrangement I can boot into the the PC with a live (32bit 10.10) cd.

Ubuntu Installation :: Unable To Boot After Upgrade To 10.10?

Feb 28, 2011

I updated my pc today, all went well no errors during upgrade. But I am unable to boot. I get the splash screen with Ubuntu and 4 coloured dots, then it goes and i get a page of txt. *starting apparmor profiles skipping profile in /etc/apparmor.d/disable: usr.bin.firefox plymouthd: ply-keyboard.c:384: ply_keyboard_watch_for_input: Assertion `keyboard != ((void*)0)' failed. *Setting sensors limits rather than invoking int scripts through /etc/init.d, use the service ( utility, e.g service s20plymouth-splash start Since the script you are attempting to invoke has been converted to an upstart job. you may also use the start ( utility, eg. start s20plymouth-splash Start: uknown job S20plymouth splash

If i leave it the screen just goes black I can get to ttyl by using ctrl&alt&f7 and log in.but thats about it startx just tells me no screens found I expect because xorg isn't used. If i go into recovery mode, failsafe graphics won't load either. So i select netroot and the enter startx which will give me a root desktop. I tried reinstalling grub, but no change. Not sure where to go from here i suspect it is something to do with plymouth? but i am no expert even tho i've been a user for 4 years
