    Exclamation Problem While Installing Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx

    Hi!

    I am a 8.04 user and I am willing to upgrade to 10.04 but during the install I got the following error message:

    ubi-language failed with exit code 141. Further information may be found in /var/log/syslog. Do you want to try running this step again before continuing? If you do not, your installation may fail entirely or may be broken.

    Is there something I could do?

    Thank you!

    My advise: never upgrade an existing system. Always do a fresh/clean install! Only by that you can avoid a lot of trouble. I think that the new installation runs into some problems. Some conflict between the older version and newer version.

    Best thing to do: like i mentioned above. Do a fresh/clean installation. Backup your files and remove 8.04 completly. You can do thius during the installation of 10.04 when you enter the partition manager. There you can simply remove the partiotion which contains 8.04 (mostly partition /dev/sda1)

    So, its got nothing to do with 8.04 then??

    When you did a complete clean/fresh installation, did you removed the partition containing the 8.04 installation??

    Hi!

    Thank you for your reply.

    When you did a complete clean/fresh installation, did you removed the partition containing the 8.04 installation??
    I tried to install from the CD-ROM. I restarted my computer and booted it from the CD-ROM. When the screen with a keyboard and a human showed up, I pressed any key and tried to install from there, but those aforementioned error messages appeared again.

    When I moved from Ubuntu 7.10 to 8.04 I did not need to remove the previous Ubuntu install (7.10), since 8.04 overwritten it and I can't understand why 10.04 is not doing the same.

    Thank you!

    Normally it shouldn't give any problems. But what can cause problems are settings used by the older version which might conflict with files from the newer version. So, therefore i advisedyou to do a fresh/clean installation. And also when i read this: .....Do you want to try running this step again before continuing? If you do not, your installation may fail entirely or may be broken..... there's a high risk of ending up with a new installatuion which is completly crappy.

    I always remove partitions with a live-cd of Gparted before installing a new version of Ubuntu and it never gave me any problems.

    Hi!

    I finally could install Ubuntu 10.04 here. The problem was the CD I used to burn Ubuntu. I first used an Imation CD-R and when I tried to install Ubuntu, it simply did not work! Then I burned a Nipponic CD-R and the installation flowed swiftly.

    It is strange because during the burning process no error message was issued or something like that. The fact is that I shall not use Imation CDs to burn a Ubuntu ISO again.

    By the way, thank you very much for your kind replies and support! That's the soul and essence of Ubuntu's community!

    See You!

    Thank You!
