Ubuntu Installation :: Update Manager Aborted 10.04 Upgrade

Dec 31, 2010

Ubuntu Studio (no idea what version, no idea how to find out) Update Manager has been saying 10.04 is ready for quite some time, but I cannot install the upgrade. The first time, more than a month ago, it had problems with Java and aborted. This time it couldn't find a repository in NZ so it threw up its (virtual) hands and gave up. Should I even try to upgrade? I keep installing maintenance and security updates (except Adobe Flash Player which Adobe cannot identify). It does most of what I want it to do. Does 10.04 (or 10.10) really matter? Assuming I try for US 10.04 LTS again, how do I get it past its problems?

Ubuntu Installation :: Update To 32 / 64 Bit With Upgrade Manager?

Jan 9, 2010

Update Manager wants me to update to Firefox 3.5.7. I'm currently running 64-bit Firefox 3.5.6. I'd like to update, but Update Manager says nothing about this 3.5.7 being the 64-bit version. If I upgrade from the UM, I don't know if I'll be getting 32-bit or 64-bit FF. How can I tell beforehand which one I'll get?

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Upgrade To 10.04 Usign Update-manager -d

Apr 13, 2010

Basically, the update manager pops up and... nothing happens. It checks for updates but doesn't indicate upgrade availability.Running other commands like apt-get distribution-upgrade also doesn't do anything.

I think the problem is the fact that I've installed a bunch of software from rep's and ppa's via ubuntu-tweak that are more recent than the ones in Ubuntu's rep, but I can't been sure.Also, I've deactivated all third party rep's and ppa's, but I still have a bunch of software installed via those sources.

Ubuntu Installation :: Online Upgrade From 8.04 To 10.04 Using The Update Manager

Apr 30, 2010

I'm trying to do an online upgrade from 8.04 to 10.04 using the update manager. Since update manager did not indicate that there was and upgrade, I used the update-manager --devel-release command to initiate the process. The upgrade stops during while looking for channels with the following error message:

A problem occurred during the update. This is usually some sort of network problem, please check your network connection and retry.

W:Failed to fetch
http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dis...kports/Release Unable
to find expected entry main/debian-installer/binary-i386/Packages in
Meta-index file (malformed Release file?)

E:Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead. I don't believe this to be a network problem because it fails in the same place every time. I don't see the entry for debian-installer in the Release file which I believe is why the error is occuring, however, I'm not sure what to do about it. It seems like something is pointed to the wrong place. I've maintained this system with update-manager for several years and never had a problem.

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrade Via The Update Manager Using Karmic 9.10

May 6, 2010

I was so impressed by the screen-shots of 10.04 LTS that i wanted upgrade via the update manager( am using karmic 9.10).Everything went well with downloading the new packages till the point of installation of downloaded packages. Halfway through the installation power went off and when i restarted the system it was stuck at some point with the message

Code: mount: nothing to mount in /dev or something like that. Then i restarted the system in recovery mode and ran "dpkg" to fix broken packages hoping it would fix the issue.It did to some extent that i was type the problem here through the affected system.

The problem is i couldn't send the crash report the first time around and i can't get hold of it now.My system is somewhere between karmic and lucid ("About Ubuntu" shows as karmic and System Monitor shows it as lucid").So i how do i get a clean installation of lucid?

Ubuntu Installation :: No 10.10 Upgrade Notice On 10.04 Update Manager

Nov 5, 2010

I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 desktop edition on one of my machines and its connected to internet via network proxy with username/password authentication enabled.

I've provided proxy details in Synaptic Package Manager and also in System -> Preferences -> Network Proxy. I can see any new updated libraries when I check Update Manager, but somehow I do not see the notice of availability of Ubuntu 10.10 and hence not able to upgrade.

On my home laptop (Dell Inspiron 700m) which connects to internet directly and over there I was able to upgrade to 10.10

So I think there is some problem with respect to update manager where it cant see the new release available behind proxy.

Ubuntu Installation :: Update-manager -d Doesn't Have Upgrade Button

Mar 31, 2010

I'm on a fully updated and upgraded 9.10, and when I do update-manager -d, I don't get the button to do an upgrade to 10.04! What could cause this? I've tried the -d, -c, --check-dist-upgrades, --devel-release, -p, --proposed, and --dist-upgrade. I'm completely up to date on 9.10, but I want to upgrade to 10.04!

Ubuntu Installation :: Unable To Showing Up On The Update Manager To Upgrade?

Apr 28, 2011

Finally I have been waiting for 11.04 to be released, but It is not showing up on the update manager to upgrade. The LTS release only is checked in the settings. Do I have to manually upgrade or do I have to install 10.10 then 11.04? or is it that the servers are quite busy?

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrade 8.10 Intrepid To 9.04 Jaunty With Update Manager Fails

Feb 11, 2010

I had an old machine running Feisty.I followed the EOL guides and upgraded from 7.04 => 7.10 => 8.04 => 8.10 (intrepid).Now that I'm at intrepid, I want to use the update manager to upgrade to 9.04 (Jaunty). Whenever I launch update manager (System->Administration->Update Manager) everything looks fine until I choose "New distribution release '9.04' is available" and click the Upgrade button.

At this point, Update Manager complains and says "Could not find the release notes" "The server may be overloaded". I'm assuming this could be a faulty URL somewhere, but I wouldn't know where. My sources.list seems to work fine for regular intrepid updates, so not sure there would be anything there that could be the fault. Once I get this error, I can only click "close".

Extracting the upgrade failed. There may be a problem with the network or with the server. Obviously, my general networking is fine (or I wouldn't be able to post this message)..and again, standard updates work fine.Any insight into what is causing this (or maybe how Update Manager works so that I might try a bit of debugging myself?

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 Installation :: Update Manager No Longer Works Post Upgrade To Lucid

May 28, 2010

When I run update manager, it gives me an error message saying:

Code:

This can be caused by:
* A previous update which didn't complete
* Problems with some of the installed software
* Unofficial software packages not provided by Ubuntu
* Normal changes of a pre-release version of Ubuntu
if I click partial upgrade, it looks like it did during the upgrade, then says:

Code:

There are no upgrades available for your system. The upgrade will now be canceled.
if I click close from the first "not all updates can be installed" dialog, it says:

Code:

It is impossible to install or remove any software. Please use the package manager "Synaptic" or run "sudo apt-get install -f" in a terminal to fix this issue at first.
running the suggested line gives the following output:

Code:

In Synaptic, fixing broken packages does nothing. Mark All Updates > Apply seems to work, but I'd still like to figure out why Update Manager does not?

Ubuntu :: Open Office Broken After Aborted Update To 10.xx?

May 26, 2010

I have a user who rather stupidly attempted to upgrade his Jaunty to 10.04 - half way thru, he got fed up and rebooted. I managed to get his machine to boot up with most apps working except OOfice. He gets an error OpenOffice.org 3.1 Fatal Error - the application cannot be started. The component manager is not avaiable. How can I solve this? I've tried to re-install / upgrade to 10.04 using an install dvd but I don't want to remove all the settings which it seems to want to do . It wants to either install 'side by side' or 'erase and use all the disk'. I would be happy to upgrade assuming it fixes the openoffice problem.
Alternatively, how can I repair the openoffice problem?

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!

Debian :: Update-Manager To Upgrade

May 2, 2011

Before you answer I am just curious about this. I certainly would never do this nor recommend it. However because I have never tried this I was curious if it actually would happen.At the end of Lenny, would it pop up in the update-manager-gnome that a new release "Squeeze" is available? I am just curious.
