Hi,

My system got hanged while upgrading from 11.10 to 12.04 due to which i restarted my machine. Now when I am trying to upgrade it is not updating not only that it is showing some error like : partial upgrade due to some error in previous updating. Even I am getting error while opening the text editor, it is not at all opening.

Some body please help me how to overcome this problem.

Thank you

Open a terminal and post us the output of

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

And remember 12.04 still is not production mode software.

Hi

As an addendum to Teo's post


sudo apt-get install -f

may help as well.

As anewguy said, it's a pre-release version.

If you are asking this question, are you sure 12.04 is right for you ?

Kind regards

I like this - after all the years - see my "dumb" post for what NOT to do to install 12.04! ;)

Hi ,
you can also try
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade then apt will try to install any dependencies probably missing.
