I have a Asus 1201n. I've used Ubuntu-Linux for a few years now...

When I clicked the distro-upgrade last night, everything was going along smoothly for a while. Then the computer overheated and shut-down. 1) I've never had that happen before, is that possibly a bug of some sort with this upgrade? 2) Now what, the 10.10 upgrade is broken, but the system (when I run an older kernel) thinks it has already upgraded...
How do I re-run the upgrade, so that it can really install?

Try this command in terminal and see if this corrects the problem.


sudo dpkg --configure -a
This will attempt to fix anything that was downloaded during the upgrade and complete unfinished results.

Interrupted upgrades can sometimes be problematic.

Did you back up your data ?

If
sudo dpkg --configure -a does not work, can you describe the problem you are having, error messages, etc ?

It may be easier to re-install and restore from back up.
