    Re: upgrading

    Did you read through what was actually being removed, and why?

    Every time I first upgrade a system I read through what packages are getting pulled out and what is being put in.

    Canonical fully supports 11.10 and 12.04(as of now), so it seems like thats a package specific notification.

    Are you currently using a wired connection from that machine? If so then please open a Terminal window, run the following commands, and reply here with the results:

    Code:
    sudo lshw -class network
    Code:
    nm-tool

    For the information of anyone reading this thread.

    The upgrade process will also upgrade the default applications such as Libreoffice. Applications that we have installed and that are not supported by Canonical cannot be upgraded during the upgrade process. Those applications are removed because there would be conflicts between the old libraries need by that application and the new libraries that are being brought in.

    Ubuntu 11.10 saw the start of the change over from Gnome 2 to Gnome 3. That change over became greater with 12.04. We also gained multi-architecture libraries that help a 32bit application run on a 64bit OS as well as the the 64bit versions of the applications. Before this specific 32bit libraries were needed to run 32bit applications.

    This is why we have to re-install some applications after an upgrade and why we get a warning that the application is going to be removed.

    Regards.
    It is a machine. It is more stupid than we are. It will not stop us from doing stupid things.
