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?

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 :: Wubi Boot Failure After Kernel Upgrade

Nov 27, 2010

I've been running Ubuntu 10.04 AMD64 on our home theater PC through a wubi installation. Yesterday the system update installed a new kernel and today there is a problem booting the computer so I'm reluctantly using Windoze to type this. there isn't much information: the computer has always booted fine before the kernel update. When I select Ubuntu in the boot menu the screen goes black and the computer restarts. No error messages, no GRUB menu, just a blank screen before restart.

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Boot After Karmic To Lucid Upgrade?

May 3, 2010

I made the mistake of trying to upgrade my Karmic (server) installation to Lucid earlier today, after which I've been unable to boot into my server. The server is on OVH, so I can't watch it boot, but I am able to access all of the data from the filesystems via rescue mode. I ran fsck and that came back clean. I also ran the boot info script, the results of which are below.

I know my best bet is to backup what I can and do a fresh install, but I won't be able to back everything up so trying to get this working would certainly be more convenient. I'm sure I'm leaving out useful information, so let me know and I'll post it.

Boot Info Script 0.55 dated February 15th, 2010
Boot Info Summary:
=> Lilo is installed in the MBR of /dev/sda
File system: ext3

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrade Lucid From Wubi Install To Real Partition?

Jun 4, 2010

I have been using Lucid Lynx for almost 2 weeks and have got everything working, thanks to the "ubuntu" spirit in this forum. Now I am ready to upgrade my Wubi install to its separate partition. I have searched the forum and googled to find a way to do this, but I am still stuck.

I used lvpm (despite knowing that there is no confirmation of its working on Lucid Lynx), it didn't work. The installation happened alright but it wasn't able to show up the login screen (GDM?). It was stuck around the screen before that (Xsplash?).

There is this thread http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=438591 that explains this process very well but remains silent on Lucid Lynx version.

I am sure there must be many other first timers who wanted to get their feet wet the easy way using wubi and would like to make it "permament" OS on their computers.

Is there anyone who can suggest if :

1. There is any way I can still use lvpm to transfer wubi install to separate installation (Ubuntu 10.04 release) ?

2. Any other way I can do this ??

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 '

255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 38913 cylinders

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 :: Unable To CD Boot For Non-Wubi Install

Dec 27, 2010

I've been unable to do a non-Wubi install of U 10.10 desktop 32 bit. My setup:

HP p6240f , Intel Core2 Quad Q8300 2.5 GHz, 4 MB L2 Cache, 1333 MHz FSB

Currently, I have a clean install of Windows XP (updated) on my desktop. Previously, I used a clean install of Windows 7, but ran into the same problems below. My U install problems are:

1.) Live CD will not boot upon restarting PC. As per the U documentation web site (URL) , md5sums confirmed that proper .iso copy was downloaded and burned to CD. (However, see log file below for md5 error)

2.) "Installing CD boot helper" does not work. I receive the following error message: "Could not retrieve the required installation files", and it refers to a log file. An excerpt of the log file is below.

Ubuntu Installation :: Forcing Windows 7 Boot In Wubi Install (9.10)?

Apr 14, 2010

I recently did a Wubi install of 9.10 on my netbook that initially ran Windows 7 Starter. I wanted to speed up the booting process so I went into Windows and set the OS selection list waiting time to be 0 and the default OS to be ubuntu. I did this assuming that there is a way to force OS selection list to be brought up during boot; I think I was wrong.So now, I'm stuck booting directly into 9.10 (not even a full install!). Is there a way to either modify the Windows boot file to reset the selection list timer or to force the list to be brought back out?

EDIT: I should note that editing the grub files within the wubi install would only make changes to the GRUB loader, which has no effect on the actual Windows loader.

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 Installation :: Vista / Dell XPS Won't Install Or Boot From Karmic Disc

Jan 17, 2010

I've never tried installing any other operating system on my desktop so I'm not sure if it's a 9.10 bug (probably not), but whenever I choose any of the options after the ubuntu cd has been loaded at startup it goes to a black screen with the underscore at the top, and promptly reboots. At this point in time I can just boot back into windows or get to the same selection screen off of the cd.I've tried burning 3 seperate cd's and at the moment and trying to boot them on my laptop (but not working... hrm). I'm thinking about redownloading the iso in a couple minutes.

Ubuntu :: Wubi Install - Upgrade To 10.10?

Nov 6, 2010

I installed through Wubi and in update manager 10.10 has appeared,

I have two questions:

1) Will this install in the Wubi directory? (c://ubuntu) or do i have to partition it first? If i do, please tell me a link how because the one i followed on the wiki said it didn't support 10.04 wubi. I would prefer to upgrade the Wubi install though

2) Will upgrading remove any of my user files? I installed themes i want to keep, and i wouldn't want to loose them.

Ubuntu Installation :: Fails To Load After Upgrade From 10.04 To 10.10 On Wubi?

Dec 22, 2010

I had a 10.04 Wubi install on my Win7 notebook. I selected the option to upgrade to 10.10 from update manager. It downloaded all the updates, but reported that due to some problem, only a partial upgrade will be possible. I agreed. And now, when I select Ubuntu from the startup OS list, it just shows a blank screen and restarts within 3-5 seconds. What do I do??
