    Question Ubuntu upgrade failure!

    Hey folks I need help! I tried to do the 8.04 LTS upgrade via the updater and it locked up my box forcing a hard reboot, now my box will not boot back to the desktop! I tried running:
    sudo dpgk-reconfigure xserver-xorg
    This generated an error saying that it wasn't installed or was broken. How do I repair this? TIA!

    try restarting the upgrade process again.

    sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

    i posted this elsewhere,i did upgrade too,but it was quirky so i just whipped up a new 8.04 cd and re installed from that and then updated and it is working pretty good now.
