    Won't Boot after upgrade

    Hi,

    Have a koala mini purchased from System 76.

    After a recent network upgrade, I get:

    cannot execute /etc/apparmor/initramf

    a bunch of stuff (normal) then goes by until

    checking battery status

    after which it goes black

    Re: Won't Boot after upgrade

    By network upgrade, do you mean from one version of Ubuntu to another (11.04 to 11.10, for example) or updating Ubuntu normally through update manager? Also, which version of Ubuntu did you upgrade from (if applicable), and what version are you currently running?

    Sorry, it was the update manager.

    I am sorry to say that I am not sure what the new version, but I think the version I had was 9.04

    Looking at the error and googling it shows 9.10 was the version with the problem you have repeated messages for the same error in the link below.

    There are some answers in the threads here but they are all very old LINK year 2010 .

    You may be better installing a later version alongside your existing installation ..... as fresh installs tend to have less problems ...... gives you a dual boot until you can repair the problem ( takes 30 mins once you have the CD ).

    2010 April
    Lucid 10.04 ..... http://releases.ubuntu.com/lucid/

    2011 April
    Natty 11.04 .... http://releases.ubuntu.com/natty/

    New one to be released shortly but its still in testing .....
