Ubuntu Installation :: 10.04 Install Interrupted - How To Complete

Jan 7, 2011

I was installing 10.04 as a dual boot with Win7, the install was interrupted and now I can't do anything with it. Booting, I get as far as '[0.541227] kernal_thread_helper' and it stops there with or without a disc. How do I complete the install or strip out something so that I can start again?

Ubuntu Installation :: Get To 9.10 Without A Complete Re-install?

May 26, 2011

Looks like I waited too long to upgrade from 9.04 to 9.10. Now the Update Manager wants to take my system to 10.04, but then says it is 'not supported with this tool'.Do I need to do a complete re-install of the OS? Is there a reasonable way to get to 9.10 without a complete re-install?

Ubuntu Installation :: Unable To Complete 10.04 Install

Apr 30, 2010

Decided to upgrade my 8.04 server to 10.04 today. Everything went smooth when I tried to install in vmware. When I tried to install it on my real machine the installation hangs at 74% Storing Language...

I've checked the disk and I tried different ways to install (different language, both keyboard and system). The first two attempts the installer just turns off and the computer reboots. This third time it just hangs. how to debug and solve this problem?

It's the x86_64 version. I'm using the standard options all the time including LVM on whole disk.

Ubuntu Installation :: 11.04 Install Didn't Complete

May 24, 2011

I just installed ubuntu 11.04 (64-bit) on my system. I mounted / on my SSD and /home on my HD. The installation proceeded for a while and then I suddenly got a message that the installer crashed. Nevertheless the installed linux seems to work and I can boot in Ubuntu. Not sure what exactly is wrong now that the install didn't complete. Any way for me to check what went wrong and what exactly I can do to make sure my system is ok? All appears ok but appearances can be deceiving.

When I boot into Debian 8, I pull up a terminal and as root enter "apt-get install xfce4"... It then tries to install but asks for the install DVD. When I insert the USB it will not install from it.

Ubuntu Installation :: Unable To Update The Eclipse - Cannot Complete The Install Because Of A Conflicting Dependency

Mar 15, 2010

I installed the Eclipse IDE using Ubuntu packages. (Version 3.5.1. Package name:eclipse).A few days back, version 3.5.2 was released. I would like to update, so I added the following websites to the list of available ones:


I then tried with Check for Updates. While on my Mac installation this results in an update to 3.5.2, on Ubuntu the program says there is nothing to update.If I try to install manually, choosing Install New Software and the then selecting the Eclipse Platform 3.5.2, I get the following error:

Cannot complete the install because of a conflicting dependency.

Only one of the following can be installed at once:


it is possible to update the packaged verison of Eclipse or if I should install the binary from the website?

Ubuntu :: Sudo Aptitude Install USplash - DPKG Interrupted

Jan 2, 2010

I was installing something, usplash, I think it was...
I ran $ sudo aptitude install usplash
and after it asked me if I wanted to install some aditional packages, it returned this:
E: dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'sudo dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem.

I have seen this error before. I just ran the command
$ sudo dpkg --configure -a
And it returned this:
Setting up initramfs-tools (0.92bubuntu29) ...
update-initramfs: deferring update (trigger activated)

Processing triggers for initramfs-tools ...
update-initramfs: Generating /boot/initrd.img-
Cannot find /lib/modules/
update-initramfs: failed for /boot/initrd.img-
dpkg: subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 1

I did an:
$ aptitude search initramfs-tools
and I noticed that it had a "C" next to it. I think this has something to do with the package not being configured correctly or at all. Also looks like it is trying to generate an initd, but missing something. That kernel name looks kinda funky, though...

Ubuntu Installation :: Interrupted Upgrade Reinstall Now Grub Does Not Work

Dec 4, 2010

Had a working WinXp/Karmic dual boot system. Tried to upgrade Karmic to Lucid and my daughter rebooted the system during the upgrade. I decided to do a fresh install of ubuntu, leaving Windows in place and it succeeded until the end when it said it could install the bootloader, so I proceeded without. I meant to say "it said it couldn't install the bootloader, so I proceeded without.

On booting, Grub drops to the command line.
I get grub>, not grub-rescue>
I did ls in grub and it showed the partitions I expected
/sda5 is /boot
/sda6 is /swap
/sda7 is /
/sda8 is /home

I tried to follow the grub2 command line manual by entering
set root=(hd0,7) (success)
linux /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.32-24-generic root=/dev/sda7 ro (failed - couldn't find file)
so I'm now a bit stuck.

Here are my bootinfo_script results (by the way, sdb is just an e-SATA hard disc with nothing installed on it, I don't know why bootinfo thinks Windows is there. Windows is on /sda2 with some sort of backup/recovery partition on /sda1)
Boot Info Script 0.55 dated February 15th, 2010
Boot Info Summary:
=> Grub 2 is installed in the MBR of /dev/sda and looks on the same drive in
partition #7 for /boot/grub.
=> Windows is installed in the MBR of /dev/sdb .....

General :: Fedora Update Install Interrupted - Screen Goes Black

Feb 23, 2010

I'm new to Fedora! My problem is this, I was updating Fedora using yum, the updates were in the process of installing when I got up and tripped over my power cord and of course cut power to my computer killing it and interrupting the installation. I plug my computer back in and boot it back up. I make it to the blue Fedora loading screen with the blank Fedora symbol that fills with white while loading; loads fine but before the user login screen appear Fedora melts down. The screen goes black, the cursor appears with the circle loading timer, and some form of terminal is there were I can enter text but no commands like SU or whatever seems to work.

Ubuntu Installation :: General Error Mounting Filesystems After Interrupted Upgrade From 10.04 To 10.10

Oct 13, 2010

Originally posted in Launchpad yesterday [Question #129083]:

Quote: System froze in mid-upgrade from 10.04 to 10.10 and now fails to boot, giving a 'general error mounting filesystems' message when loading [in either normal or recovery mode.] However, the boot menu remains accessible with the F8 key and is functional.

While in the 10.10 Live CD, using the chroot method in the grub2 help proved unsuccessful and returned this pastebinned result. The system is 10.04 64-bit running an nvidia card and sporadically froze with increasing frequency. No resolution to the freezing could be found online, which seemed associated with any of nvidia, usb, flash or even firefox. Can someone suggest an alternative to restore to bootable condition and resume upgrade without having to reinstall and wipe the drive? I also followed the copy alternative to the chroot method in the grub2 help and still get the same core dump for chroot and device not found error for upgrade-grub as posted in pastebin. I'm still running off of the 64-bit 10.10 Live CD.

Skimming other "general error mounting filesystems" topics in this section, I realise I may have to bite the bullet and cut my losses, since those other users seemed to settle for a reinstall. Any final advice out there I can try out?

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrade Interrupted - Unable To Access DPKG Status Area

Jan 6, 2010

I was in the process of upgrading my ubuntu system (probably the latest version, it was about a month ago) and my computer froze (it does that on occasion). I have looked around this site, and tried a few things. I assume I am supposed to use the command "sudo dpkg --configure -a" to fix it. The problem is that when I do that, I get the message "dpkg: unable to access dpkg status area: read-only file system". So, what do I do now? I definitely dont want to mess up my system, but I want to fix it.

Ubuntu Installation :: Changing From Windows Version To Complete Installation

May 25, 2010

I have Ubuntu 10.04 installed in my laptop through a windows installation and I want to make a new, complete, install so I can boot directly in Ubuntu (and change some configuration choices I didn't get right in the first place). Is there any (as simple as posible) way to save my actual data (users, software installed, personal files...) as a whole so I can "install" all that back to the "new" Ubuntu installation?

Ubuntu :: 11.04 Complete Install Failure?

Apr 28, 2011

I've tried about a billion times to get this to install correctly to no avail. This is the amd64 desktop edition, but I've tried with the 32 bit as well. I have a lenovo W500. The system never boots off the USB. It gets through a bit, with text output, and then stops. Sometimes it doesn't even give an error message, and other times I get something like udev failed while loading some pci device. I've tried re-downloading the iso several times, different USB keys, different USB key creators, CDs, to no avail.

I then thought, well, heck with it, I'll just install 10.10 and upgrade. Nope, there's a GPG key error for some bizarre reason, which is tripping up apt, but it's not going to tell me what key that is so I can go and get it (and apt-key update does nothing). Command line upgrades fail similarly. So finally, I go for broke and try to just install the thing with Wubi. Of course, that eventually crashes too.

Ubuntu Installation :: Complete Re-installation If I Want To Run The Final Version Of 10.04?

Apr 7, 2010

I ran Ubuntu 9.10 back in the days and when 10.04 Beta 1 was released I upgraded it by using the update-manager -d. My question is, if I use the upgrade-manager -d feature will it be like an actual beta 2 when it gets released and later on will it be the same as the full final version. Or must I do a complete re-installation if I want to run the final version of 10.04?

Ubuntu :: Complete System Crashes After Lucid Install

May 5, 2010

Since having installed Lucid Lynx, I have several complete system crashes a day, no matter which applications I am using. Lucid crashes without any error message and the system reboots. I have had no problem whatsoever with Karmic Koala (also switched from ext2 to ext4 when installing Lucid Lynx). Is there any probable reason for that or a workaround? Can I paste any logs here for anybody to figure out what might be going on? When I try XP which is also install, the system won't crash (so far...), so I don't think it's a hardware problem.

My system:
Mainboard: Gigabyte GA-MA78G-DS3H, AMD 780G, ATX
Processor: AMD Athlon64 X2 4800+ AM2 box "EE" 65W, 2x512kB
Coolermaster Centurion5 Schw. CAC-T05-UW ohne Netzteil
ATX BE Quiet! Straight Power 400 Watt / BQT E5
2x2048MB DDR2 Aeneon PC6400 CL 5, PC6400/800
DVD: LG GH20N bare schwarz (SATA-II)
HDD: Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 500GB SATA II ST3500320AS
