    Thumbs down Be carefull about using Software Updater: 1 package held back in 13.10.

    LibColumbus held back in 13.10. So don't use Software Updater in 13.10 or else it will offer you a Partial Upgrade!

    If you have updated your repositories to 13.10 you may to see many partial upgrades over the next six months , it's just part of testing . I didn't see this in 13.04 though.

    I wouldn't recommend using software-updater at all to update during a development release. Sudo apt-get dist-upgrade is a better choice!

    It's probably caused by the packages in the repos not being synced(?) right. If you wait a little while all the packages should be uploaded right.
    At least that's what I've found.

    So we're not suppose to test a major package?

    It just has rarely cooperated in past cycles.

    Software Updater usually does NOT work at all during Alpha/Beta, and when it does work, it will usually offer you a Partial Upgrade. sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade is the better choice. P.S. See Cariboo907's comments regarding Partial Upgrades in the above Sticky.

    I agree with you 100% on that statement, though it looks like they are at least finally trying to fix the problems with it.

    My point is , that shouldn't be an excuse not to help test and fix it.

    If it is not tested in the development stage, then what about the users who install it in stable and the program goes bonkers.

    It's in this stage the we can help prevent that.

    By the way, deadflowr, are you helping us test Ubuntu + 1 right now? Since you Signature says that you are on 12.04? Those of us who are actually testing Ubuntu + 1 usually change our Profile so it says Ubuntu Developmental Release in our Profile. If you are just using Software Updater in 12.04.2 you should have no problems at all, as long as it does NOT Lock Up your System. But if you are actually helping us test 13.10 by putting in Ventrical's 3 Command's in 13.04, you should instead use sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade. Just to let you know. P.S. Software Updater has Locked Up all of my 3 Computers before, so use caution about actually using it, Just to let you know.
