View Full Version : [ubuntu] Instalation stuck on retrieving files

January 19th, 2012, 10:15 AM
As I was installing Ubuntu 11.10 it got stuck on retrieving files 55 of 117 so I decided to pull the internet cable to see if anything would happen. The instalation continued and it seems to work fine for now.

Can anyone tell me how bad I've messed up and how to fix whatever is wrong

Open a terminal and enter:

sudo apt-get update

followed by:

sudo apt-get upgrade

Get any errors? If not, you lucked out.

Also if it offers you a partial upgrade; don't do it. That can turn into a can of worms.
