    Thanks for this. Still failed.

    This is what the terminal said when running the app/purge:
    HTML Code:
    jonathan@jonathan-laptop:~$ sudo ppa-purge ppa:ubuntu-x-swat/x-updates
    PPA to be removed: ubuntu-x-swat x-updates
    Warning:  Could not find package list for PPA: ubuntu-x-swat x-updates

    Re: Update error

    The only help I can offer you is this:

    Backup the machine and then do a clean install of 10.10, if that's what you want on it. Upgrades can be a pain in the butt, and sometimes it's easier to start with a clean slate.

    You can mark whatever packages you have installed in synaptic and then inport it in a new install, but as for keeping the settings and whatnot, I don't know if there is a way out of doing a normal upgrade.
