Sorta newbie here - I'm trying to upgrade to 10.04 and it keeps shutting down @ 95%... something to do with dpkg? HELP!
Welcome to the Ubuntu forums!
Are you upgrading from 8.04 or 9.10?
On-line or a clean install?]
If online, which method are you using (what command if in terminal)?
I know it might be hard to do, but if possible it would be useful to get to get the exact error message.
Did you do an upgrade of all your packages on your old Ubuntu release before trying to upgrade to 10.04? Any error messages when you run
in your old release?
sudo apt-get update
I tried to update yesterday and received a dpkg error message as well - that's why I attempted to install 10.04 from a live CD (upgrading from 8.04). I can't recall the exact message but said I needed to configure dpkg mannually.
Sounds to me like it said to run:
which should fix the problem.
sudo dpkg --configure -a
