Ubuntu Installation :: Run The Upgrade Manager, The 'Distribution Upgrade?

Mar 14, 2011

I'm running Ubuntu 10.10 and 2.6.35-27-generic. When I run the Upgrade Manager, the 'Distribution Upgrade' window pops up and in bold letters reads 'Running partial upgrade'.

The next line reads '>Preparing to upgrade' and sits there. Mean while, the process begins to perform a great deal of constant hard drive activity. The window's horizontal activity bar reads 'Calculating the changes' at the bottom of the 'Distribution Upgrade' window.

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrades Held Back - Two Packages - Grayed Out And Do Not Upgrade In Upgrade-manager

Mar 29, 2010

I'm running 10.04 and for several days now I get two packages that are grayed out and do not upgrade in upgrade-manager.

If I use the shell and apt-get I get the following message: The following packages have been kept back: firefox-gnome-support update-manager

The system is functioning well, but these 2 packages just linger as I process probably hundreds of lucid upgraded packages.

Ubuntu Installation :: Distribution Upgrade To 10.04 - Not Enough Disk Space

May 2, 2010

I am trying to upgrade my ubuntu distribution from 9.10 to 10.04 using update-manager. I have only 2G free in my / partition, and update-manager complains saying it needs 4G free in the / partition to upgrade.

I presume the space is needed to store downloaded packages. Is there any way I can change the download directory to some other partition (i have plenty of space in other partitions)?

Debian Installation :: Fresh Install - Upgrade To Frozen Squeeze Distribution

Sep 2, 2010

Every where I look online, people are posting ridiculous non-working ways to upgrade their system from one release to another--they do not work for me and I need a definite expert reply. I am working with a fresh install of Debian Lenny/Stable and wish to upgrade to the frozen Squeeze distribution. Supplementing the word "squeeze" in place of "lenny" in my sources.list file does not work and believe this to be an inappropriate way of upgrading. I have tried upgrading apt, dpkg, and aptitude before beginning the upgrade process, cleaning dpkg cache, rebooting, etc.

After updating the above packages I tried all methods of upgrading: safe-upgrade, full-upgrade, and dist-upgrade. All produce dependency problems and try to remove the gnome-desktop package or upgrade everything else except gnome-desktop. (Other packages are also affected, gnome-desktop is the most important in this instance). As I understand it, when upgrading you can comment out the volatile repositories as well as the security updates, is this correct?--either way I have tried countless combination's off commenting/uncommenting to try to get the needed results. I do not want use sid repos or reinstall.

Ubuntu :: Upgrade Manager Wants To Upgrade Uninstalled Package?

May 1, 2011

Using Lubuntu 10.10. I uninstalled Apache Server (it was once installed). But the update manager is cites many new Apache updates that I need. But again Apache is not installed anymore. Synaptic says it's not installed. I have a checker for orphaned packages it says nothing about Apache. Why does the updater say this? Maybe there's a "residue" of Apache somewhere?

Ubuntu :: How To Upgrade Distribution

Mar 18, 2011

I have an old copy of Ubuntu Feisty Fawn 7.04 in a virtual machine that I haven't used in a long time. I want to update the distribution to the latest but I'm not seeing an option to do so under the upgrade manager or the synaptic package manager. When I attempt to refresh my package information I get an error message talking about how the repository is no longer valid. I've even tried to open the terminal and type: sudo apt-get dist-upgrade and it doesn't do anything.

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrade From 10.04 To 10.10 Error "Could Not Calculate The Upgrade An Unresolvable Problem Occurred While Calculating The Upgrade"

Feb 12, 2011

I keep getting the following msg as I try to upgrade from 10.04 -> 10.10 ... "Could not calculate the upgrade An unresolvable problem occurred while calculating the upgrade: E:Error, pkgProblemResolver::Resolve generated breaks, this may be caused by held packages. This can be caused by:

* Upgrading to a pre-release version of Ubuntu
* Running the current pre-release version of Ubuntu
* Unofficial software packages not provided by Ubuntu

If none of this applies, then please report this bug against the 'update-manager' package and include the files in /var/log/dist-upgrade/ in the bug report." I don't think any of the issues above apply - can anyone offer advice on how to get around or "force " the upgrade

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

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 :: Upgrade 9.04 To 9.10: Lost Network Manager

Jan 16, 2010

This is my fourth on-line upgrade from Gutsy (started with Dapper ...) all the previous one went without a hitch !

So I was pretty confident this afternoon upgrading my Lenovo laptop from 9.04 to 9.10.

At one point during the install, I got error messages and was offer to do a "Partial Install". I accepted, different things happened, rebooted. Update manager came on with again the partial update pop-up. Accepted it again, it downloaded more files, rebooted, partial upgrade window again but it failed immediately.

The network connection was gone, clicking on the network icon I got a message that the network manager is not running.

I cannot check or uncheck the "network unabled" choice.

However, 9.10 is running, slow and weird, but no network connection so I cannot try to finish the "partial upgrade"

Every time I reboot the Update manager pops up.

Trying to boot any previous version in "grub" fails right away saying it is unable to mount the drives ...

Is there a way to start the Network Manager from a terminal ?

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 :: Virt - Manager Won't Start After Upgrade 10.04 To 10.10?

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 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?

1. Update-manager panel icon changes into do-not-enter traffic sign.

2. If you want to re-install Update-manager using Synaptic, then Synaptic opens for a while and then closes by itself.

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrade Manager Wants To Remove Gnome

May 3, 2011

Upgrade Manager wants to remove 'gnome' & 'gnome-desktop-environment,' and doesn't want to replace it with anything else. It appears that this will completely hose my Gnome UI and 'force' me to use Unity.

Is this what's going to happen?

This could hose my whole OS... What can I do?
