Ubuntu Installation :: Attempted To Upgrade To 10.04 Through Update Manager - Computer Crashed

May 8, 2010

So I attempted to Upgrade 2 days ago from 9.10 to 10.04. I started the upgrade and left my computer alone as it said it would take several hours. When I returned to check on it, It told me the the installation had failed and it was attempting to roll back to the previous installation. Afterward I couldn't access anything on my computer. I'd click a icon and it wouldn't do anything. I manually restarted it and was greeted with a message that it couldn't boot because there was no mount specified.

Since I had backed up all my files I tried to just reinstall ubuntu. However even after I reinstalled I'm greeted with the same message.

Ubuntu :: Update Manager Crashed - Root Filesystem Check Failed

Apr 8, 2011

This is a Natty system. I ran update manager to update to the latest releases for Natty, and it crashed. I ran it again and it told me it could only do a partial upgrade, and that I should do apt-get install -f. I did that, but apt-get told me the system was locked by another program. Not to worry I thought, I'll just reboot. So I did that, and I think Update-Manager got a lot further through the process than I thought, because my system is borked. It'll boot into Gnome, but when booting up the Boot Screen no longer shows the pretty Ubuntu Logo, but rather a line of text that says "Ubuntu 11.04".

When it gets into Gnome the keyboard and mouse more or less don't work (although the keyboard based Fn+9 and Fn+10 brightness control still works) and there is no desktop background. After about 30 seconds something crashes but I can't click on it to find out what. Going into the recovery console doesn't help either. The latest Kernel (2.6.38-7) stops moving forwards after "Begin:Running /scripts/init-bottom...done". has occurred for the second time. Luckily I still have the previous kernel, which gets to the same spot and then tells me:
"init: udevtrigger main process (390) terminated with status 1" and then "init: udevtrigger post-stop process (394) terminated with status 1".

I then get the message
"The disc drive for / is not ready yet or not present. Continue to wait; or Press S to skip mounting or M for manual recovery". S goes back to "Begin:Running /scripts/init-bottom...done" a second time, M brings up the message:
"Root filesystem check failed. A maintenance shell will now be started"
and then it asks for the root password and gives me a terminal. Everything seems to be there, but apt-get and dpkg both can't do anything as the filesystem is read only.

Fedora Networking :: Yum Broke Wireless - Network Manager Crashed

Apr 30, 2011

So, after doing a 'yum update', I minimized the terminal and completely forgot about it - so I accidentally went ahead and suspended my laptop before it had finished. I resumed my laptop and noticed that yum hadn't finished 'cleaning up' the packages. Nevertheless, yum continued and the process finished. After an hour or so use of the internet (wirelessly), all of a sudden the wireless network disconnected, and NetworkManager crashed. I rebooted my computer only to find that NetworkManager now says that my 'firmware is missing' for my wireless card.

Ubuntu :: 10.4 Crashed - Will Not Boot During An Update

Jan 28, 2011

It happened to me again, I guess I need to ignore those updates but somehow I forget each time!

Ubuntu Installation :: Computer Crashed During 11.04 Update

May 1, 2011

I was updating Ubuntu 10.10 to 11.04 and my computer crashed/shutoff because of overheating(my laptop doesn't ever do this when running Windows 7 but seems to really need to be as cool as possible when running Ubuntu). the update was at about 12-18 minutes left(also i am using wubi to have it run alongside windows). After getting pissed off that i forgot to backup Ubuntu i restarted it to see if it would finish updating.

To my dismay it the loading screen looked a bit unusual and when it go to the login screen the word "Ubuntu" was flashing uncontrollably and the time in the bottom right corner was acting the same. i feel that i have totally ruined it and i also don't know how i can remove Ubuntu from my computer so that i could reinstall it as Ubuntu 11.04 instead of upgrading from 10.10. i still have Wubi.exe for Ubuntu 10.10 but i'm not sure if that just searches for the most recent version of Ubuntu.

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.10 Update Crashed Evolution Database?

Nov 30, 2010

I always install the Ubuntu Updates that automatically pop up every few days.

Today I installed the update and it wiped out my entire Evolution database.

The Evolution e-mails and e-mail history are still there, but not a single Contact.

Is there any way to 'uninstall' today's update or go back to a time before it was implemented?

Is anyone else having this problem? I do have a database backup, but its about a month old. So I don't want to import it unless there is no way to get the current version back.

Fedora :: System Crashed During Yum Update

Jul 11, 2011

My system system suffers from frequent kernel panics, which I think are due to gnome-shell with the nVidia driver. (I see no panic message and nothing is logged, but I've enabled magic SysRq and it makes no difference.) Twice this has occurred during yum-update's install stage, which is making me wonder. Uum-update then complained about an unfinished transaction, so I ran yum-complete-transaction as suggested. I've also tried yum-clean-all and rebuilding the RPM database, suggested in other threads, but I'm still seeing the following errors on yum-update:

--> Finished Dependency Resolution
Error: Protected multilib versions: 1:cups-libs-1.4.7-3.fc15.i686 != 1:cups-libs-1.4.6-15.fc15.x86_64

I don't know where these 32-bit packages have come from this is an x86-64 system and the only x86-32 stuff I've intended to install is the Adobe flash plug-in. Also the later dupes are different 64-bit versions. I've tried "package-cleanup --cleandupes" as suggested in this thread: [URL]. It wants to remove the old versions, but also wants to remove packages that depend on them, including clutter, so I cancelled that. The first time round I was left with a barely usable system and had to reinstall, which I'd rather avoid, especially if this is going to be a regular occurrence. I'm not familiar with RPM (or kernel panics for that matter).

Ubuntu :: Chromium Shockwave Flash Plugin Crashed After Update

Mar 8, 2011

after running an upgrade chromium browser shockwave flash plugin crashed! if you have the same problem i have a workaround. firstly open firefox goto a website that uses flash (not videos) i used bbc iplayer, then right click and click on "settings..." the left most tab shows the "enable hardware acceleration" tickbox. untick it

then close and reopen chromium and go back to a flash site e.g. videos and test it is working. the reason this worked for me is that there is a bug in either googles chromium or the unix/x11 build of shockwave flash or my graphics card drivers. there seems to sevral bug reports regarding this on the net [url]. flash could be a little slower now it doesn't have the hardware accelerating it. so maybe the setting could be re-enabled in the future?

Ubuntu Installation :: 11.04 Update Crashed - Black Screen On Reboot

May 3, 2011

I tried to update my main computer from Ubuntu 10.0 to 11.04. I wish I could remember what it said, but it crashed during the update. The lights on the keyboard were flashing on and off as well. When I try to boot, all I get is a black screen and flashing lights. The Ubuntu recover also has the same thing. I am going to try a fresh install. For some reason I am leaning to the power manager, but I am no where near sure.

Fedora :: After Last Update Nvidia Drivers Crashed

Mar 13, 2009

I updated fedora 10 a few days ago, by blindly installing every update available, and when i restarted, my nvidia drivers weren't loading, and I'm having an issue I had before, where the signal being sent to the monitor is out of frequency range. Basically when fedora tries to load its GUI, my monitor just goes blank. Before I could only fix it by plugging in a different (less tempermental) monitor, and messing around with the display driver.

I was wondering if there is a way to mess with the drivers from the command line. I really don't like switching out monitors, and i want to learn the skillz and such.

When I updated Linux it crashed in the middle of the update. I think there was not enough disk space. I had a windows dual boot and tried to make the Linux partition larger but in doing that a crashed grub and can't use Linux or Windows. I tried super grub but it didn't work so I tried to fix the partitions with gparted live cd. It my disk just showed up as empty. I formatted it and re installed debian but it didn't work. I can see partitions but my computer won't boot.

OpenSUSE :: Reset The Online Updater After The App- Crashed During Update

Dec 17, 2010

I'm running 10.3, KDE, 32bit. I am working with a fresh install. The updater stated that I had updates , I accepted the updates. At this point the updater failed in some way. It did not become a zombi but stalled. I quit the updater. Now when I try and get online updates using the sys tray updater it sais none available. When I use yast online update it has some recommended updates but does not install them. I rebuilt the rpm data base and this did not help.

How can I "reset" the updater. I believe that it thinks that it did go thru the updates and therefor cant see that they still need attention.

Ubuntu Installation :: Update Manager / Software Sources / Synaptic Package Manager Not Working?

Sep 30, 2010

It started with Update Manager constantly recycling and not updating. When it starts it shows 295 files and 308MB waiting to download. When I click on 'Install Updates' it appears to go through the process, and then presents me with the same 'waiting to install' window again - and again, and again - in fact as many times as I care to click the 'Install Updates' button. No error messages appear. The 'Settings' button produces the same apparent process as the 'Install Updates' button, but doesn't present me with any other screen.

I've tried all the solutions I could find on these forums and nothing works. The sudo suggestions for Terminal usually produce error codes. adjusting a line in the 'hosts' file. When I tried this I was presented with the obstacle of not having access to the read-only file, and no matter how much I searched I couldn't find how to gain access . While investigating all these possible solutions, I was directed in turn to the Software Sources and Synaptic Package Manager applications, but when I attempted to start them, 'Starting Administrative Application' appeared briefly on the taskbar - and then disappeared!

Ubuntu :: Update Manager - Package Manager Won't Work

Feb 4, 2010

Ok so I having the same issue as everyone else but it still exists despite the solutions other people are experiencing. Update manager, synaptic, and apt-get are not working no aptitude on here. Update manager says: An unresolvable problem occurred while initializing the package information. report this bug against the 'update-manager' package and include the following error message: 'E:Encountered a section with no Package: header, Eroblem with MergeList /var/lib/apt/lists/us.archive.ubuntu.com_ubuntu_dists_natty_universe_ i18n_Translation-en%5fUS, E:The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.' apt-get has errors with headers, finding files, and wrong file types. I have gone to a couple locations and the files exist and the hash is correct, and the file types are correct. I have tried replacing the sources file. I have tried sudo rm -r /var/lib/apt/lists sudo apt-get clean sudo apt-get update with the same problem happening upon updating. In the same exact areas.
