Ubuntu Installation :: Dist-upgrade 8.04 LTS--64 To 10.04 LTS--64 Failed?

May 6, 2010

--Began with an up-to-date Ubuntu 8.04.3--64 LTS install; tar-copied everything from sda2 to sda3 and booted SDA3 so I wouldn't fry my main install:

[[ ' fdisk -l /dev/sda /dev/sdb '
Disk /dev/sda: 320.0 GB, 320072933376 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 38913 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x86dae77a


Will attach any logs requested; but I'm about to scrap the failed install and start over, 'cuz I want to test 10.04 LTS and the new Vmware Workstation 7.1--64 beta. The only thing I can think of is that I did not boot into the new kernel ( apt-get upgrade ) before doing the dist-upgrade. I've done a few of these dist-upgrades in the past this way; 6.06-LTS to 8.04, 8.04 to 9.x, etc

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Access Gui Part Way Through Dist-upgrade

May 19, 2010

I am doing a dist-upgrade from 8.04LTS to 8.09. I use usb KVM switch, and I keep my eye on it so that I can respond to the usual configuration file prompts that pop up. For a while everything went fine, but suddenly I find that I can't use the keyboard to log in and check the progress (the mouse is completely unresponsive). Here's the kicker though: the computer is fine. I can use 'Ctrl-Alt F1' through F7, and the computer responds appropriately; it just doesn't do anything when the login screen is up.

I checked the /var/log/dist-upgrade/term.log, and if I understand it correctly, whether or not to keep /etc/mysql/my.conf is currently up for question. Is there any way to take back control of the computer without interrupting the upgrade? Not knowing very much about the install process, it seems like the GUI stopped polling for input.

Ubuntu Installation :: Excluding A Package When Dist-upgrade'ing?

Feb 6, 2011

Is there a way of excluding a software package when issuing the 'apt-get dist-upgrade'command? For example the newer 'pm-utils' packs are incompatible with my hardware and my laptop starts to glitch. What I do is I uninstall and replace the package every time I run 'sudo apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade'. Which is kind of annoying. I know that you can hide updates from the update manager, but what about the terminal? I'm sure there are codes like "dist-upgrade [except pm-utils]"

Ubuntu Installation :: Regular Updates Vs Dist Upgrade?

Apr 27, 2011

I have a system running Ubuntu that hasn't been updated in a few weeks, and now has a hundred-some updates pending. Is there any benefit to installing all those updates now, rather than just waiting a day or two and then doing the full update to v11.04?

Ubuntu Installation :: Cannot Install / Unisntall After Dist Upgrade To 11.4

May 2, 2011

I did a distro upgrade to 11.4 form 10.10 yesterday. Everything works fine and 11.4 seems to be slightly faster to me.However, when I try to install/uninstall a program I get the following error:I tired:Synaptec => Custom Filters => Broken - There was no broken package sudo dpkg --configure -a - Did not do anything.The problem seems to be with the libc6 package. Seems most of the applications depend on it. My finding is that on "/var/lib/dpkg/info/" does not exist a libc6.list and seems it is causing the error.

Ubuntu Installation :: Karmic (wubi Install) Won't Boot After Dist-upgrade?

Jan 11, 2010

i have Karmic installed with Wubi inside a Vista NTFS filesystem. Yesterday i did an apt-get dist-upgrade and Karmic never booted again. It won't even show the grub kernel list, it just shows some really quick text that vanishes before i can even figure out what it is and then drops to some sort of grub shell and then i can't figure out what to do.

I could boot a livecd and mount my karmic install and everything seems fine, the filesystem is clean and all that. But how do i fix it so it can boot again?

Does anyone here know wtf happened? Was there a bad upgrade or something?

Debian Installation :: Dist-upgrade From Wheezy (using Systemd) To Jessie Hangs

Nov 19, 2014

I have done on previous releases, but this time it hangs on me. It's "only" a Virtualbox, so I can reproduce it.

The wheezy already runs systemd, and is fully updated to to latest packages. Does not run any graphical.

Edits the source.list and does
$ apt-get update
$ apt-get upgrade # Did on one upgrade
$ apt-get dist-upgrade

It starts to upgrade (complains about missing version in libpgp-error), libc is installed, but at some point the systemd is running at high CPU and a dpkg seems to be stalled.

Should I disable systemd on wheezy before? This might not have been tested so much.

Debian Installation :: Squeeze Dist-upgrade Exited With Error Continue From?

Apr 21, 2011

I was upgrading from lenny to squeeze. At the apt-get dist-upgrade step, at some point (after upgrading and configuring) it tried to create a new certificate for my mail server but creation of the certificate failed, dpkg reported an error and the whole process exited with error. So I rebooted the machine and issued again apt-get dist-upgrade but now the certificate was created successfully . After that it upgraded mysql-client and the process finished.

But I don't know if configuring of the upgraded packages has stopped at the point where dpkg stopped. I suppose so, because very few packages were configured at that point. Is the solution to run dpkg-reconfingure -a (or -u ?) or dpkg --confingure -a or something else ? (dpkg has the PACKAGE STATES)

dpkg --configure --pending gives me no package for configuration.PS: At least I hope that all packages were upgraded and a few were not configured. Is there a way to confirm that all packages were upgraded ?

Ubuntu :: Will Menu Go Away With Dist-upgrade

Sep 1, 2011

i foolishly upgraded 9.1 with some experimental debian stuff there and now the menus are all screwed up. There's not clock, show desktop, notification area and other such applets. The gnome dependencies have been compromised. It says something about the python_gmenu (= but 3.0.1-1 is already installed.E: Unmet dependencies try using -f.Now I was going to upgrade my distribution to 10.04 seeing as 9.1 is not supported anymore and I wanted to play Quake 1 and was wondering would these problems still exist if I did or have i totally screwed up my ubuntu.I have since taken away the line in /etc/apt/sources.list which caused me to mess this up in the first place.

Ubuntu :: Compiz Unusable After Dist-upgrade 10.10?

Oct 15, 2010

A couple days ago a made a dist-upgrade on ubuntu 10.10, soon after that all my compiz effects were completely disable and i'm not able to get it back on. In the "effects" bar on appearance when i change it to either normal or advance, just says it wasn't able to activate the effects. On compiz-config manager, composite, opengl and gnome compatibility don't activate when selected and doesn't recognize each other (when activate opengl indicates that needs composite active to work, even if it is already active)

How are your experiences upgrading from 10.04 to 10.10? I'm thinking about it but I'm hesitating since there is no way I could make any backups and I've had some bad experiences with Debian dist-upgrades. Have you upgraded already? If so, have you had any trouble?

Debian :: KDE Not Working After Dist-upgrade

Jan 30, 2016

After running a dist-upgrade (from stable to testing) KDE stopped working, all I get (after login in with lightdm) are the modals you can see in the attachments [1]. I do not think it is an X issue, because I can login using lightdm (and MATE is working fine).

I suspect this is because I had KDE installed before running the upgrade. The things I tried so far are:

- Runing "apt-get remove kdelibs-bin kdelibs5-data" . Then "apt-get autoremove". I did it to remove every KDE related package, after that, I ran "aptitude purge '~c' " to clean all config files. And finally "apt-get install kde-standard" to get KDE again.
- Removed .cache, .config and .kde folders. Also removed .lock files in .config folder, as I saw somewhere.
- Looked for some log files, but I could not find anything (I don't even know where to look really )

This is almost a fresh debian install so I don't mind breaking things, but I would like to get KDE working.

Ubuntu Servers :: Grub Fail After Dist-upgrade

Nov 10, 2010

After upgrading my ubuntu server from 8.04 to 10.04 and then to 10.10, grub failed to load and showed a: L 99 99 99 99 99 99 99 99 ....

I restarted using a liveCD, mounted my boot partition as /boot and then "grub-install /dev/sdb" (sda is the usb drive now) so I have access to grub console, but I don't know how to recover my boot menu.

I also use LVM, but I don't know if this is relevant.

Ubuntu Networking :: Manager Not Working After Dist Upgrade

Jul 14, 2011

I just did a dist upgrade on two computers. One of them was fine with the network manager, but the other, netbook, now refuses to start the service. If I do service start network-manager I'll get a message saying a process started, but it must be immediately dying since I can't find the pid or any network manager processes at all. I looked at daemon.log and noticed it was complaining about nm-system-settings.cfg not being there. One question I have is how is this not getting generated? It's not in the deb so somehow it must be generated. I put a fake file in there and even put some data from a pastebin I found online that looked promising, and the message in daemon.log went away but the pids were still dropping off.

I have many problems with nm-applet, but I don't want to go into it so much now that the service can't start. The problem I do see popping up is something like: ** (nm-applet:2622): WARNING **: <WARN> applet_dbus_manager_start_service(): Could not acquire the NetworkManagerUserSettings service. Message: 'Connection ":1.24" is not allowed to own the service "org.freedesktop.NetworkManagerUserSettings" due to security policies in the configuration file' (had to pull message from online, don't remember the exact message) I've tried installing and reinstalling, doing a purge uninstall. Next thing I was going to try is an aptitude uninstall of all of the dependencies in case something got weird in the upgrade.

Debian :: Maintenance Mode After Dist-upgrade

Sep 6, 2015

I have been using Debian for around two years now. I have a small home server running Debian stable i386 and keep it regularly updated (once or twice a week I perform apt-get update and afterwards apt-get dist-upgrade). The system was originally installed with Debian Wheezy and afterwards upgraded.

However, after entering dist-upgrade tonight, around 42 packages had to be updated. I agreed and afterwards got some errors. After apt-get install -f, the result is as follows:

Select allnickolay@tegulicium:$ sudo apt-get install -f
Reading package lists ... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information ... Done

[Code] ....

After rebooting the system, I am presented with the Debian Maintenance mode (root password for maintenance or Control-D to continue).

I tried dpkg --configure -a, apt-get install -f and aptitude install -f.

Unfortunately, still no resolution of the conflicts.

I assume this has to do something with the new Jessie 8.2 release ...

Debian Multimedia :: X Broke After Dist-upgrade

Mar 20, 2011

After yesterday's apt-get dist-upgrade, I lost my higher screen resolutions. Only had 800x600 and 640x480. After trying to re-install the Nvidia drivers several different ways without success, I ended up purging xorg and xserver and then starting from scratch, re-installing the drivers. In doing so, I either found the problem, or created another, ha.I think part of the problem was that I mixed Nvidia proprietary and debian installations and the update broke the drivers.I am now unable to install xorg or xserver because I can not remove/purge libgl1-nvidia-alternatives.

Ubuntu :: Blank Screen After A Sudo Apt-get Dist-upgrade / Sort It?

Jan 18, 2011

The only thing I remember being updated is xserver, but I know there were other packages updated.

After the splash screen, a text login is shown. If I do nothing, it goes right to a black screen, but first there are weird red pixels randomly strewn about the screen. If I quickly login via the text screen, it then goes to the same black screen. Either way, there are the weird red pixels and a few flashes of the screen before going black.

This happens 100% of the time.

I have tried:
booting with recovery mode and selecting repair packages (no packages are broken, missing, etc.)
booting with recovery mode and selecting startx with failsafe (same black screen)
booting with older kernels (same thing)

Ubuntu Servers :: Dist-upgrade Wants To Pull In Irrelevant Packages

Jun 22, 2011

I've been running an overnight cron job for months on my servers which tells me what apt-get dist-upgrade wants to do.

This morning I was faced with it wanting to install 115 new packages including many (if not all - I can't face checking, e.g. firefox) which are entirely pointless on a server with no gui.

apt-get upgrade wants to do the sensible (in my mind) thing.

To save anyone asking, I've been using dist-upgrade because upgrade wouldn't report on pending kernel upgrades and, until I spotted that, I was due kernel upgrades for quite a while before I realised.

I presume this is caused by an over-enthusiastic depends or recommends somewhere but does anyone actually know?

Off to work now but I'll look further this evening so any pointers before then gratefully received.

All ok again now, the bug with language pack dependencies has been fixed - [URL]
