    Exclamation Update Manager crashes after unsuccessful upgrade to 13.04

    And this is not only Update Manager, but also Ubuntu Software Center and anything dealing with software sources...

    ... this is what I assume after a huge research done on Ubuntu Forums and Google. In the end of day I could not find any solution to solve this problem.

    Just a quick say how it all began:

    I saw update available to Ubuntu 13.04 in Update Manager. So I clicked the button and upgrading process started. It was all ok till a moment I got an error I cannot remember at the moment. Something failed for sure. And since then I have problems with anything what accesses software source lists. I tried to look in the files but did not see anything suspicious. I present files below:

    Code:
    # deb cdrom:[Ubuntu 12.10 _Quantal Quetzal_ - Release i386 (20121017.2)]/ quantal main restricted

    This is it.

    I have no idea where and how to bite it.

    Any help guys will be much appreciated.

    Hi

    Welcome to the forums.

    Open a terminal and type

    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    If it fails, post the output back here.

    If it suceeds then type

    Code:
    sudo apt-get upgrade
    Any error message post them back here.

    If that suceeds type

    Code:
    gksudo software-center
    Try to install something and then post back the output from the terminal.

    Kind regards

    Re: Update Manager crashes after unsuccessful upgrade to 13.04

    Ok... So I am much confused now.


    I tried all above commands in terminal before I posted here... all ended up with failure. I started again with the first one you asked for in your post... and it went through! So I quickly checked Software Center - is now working, the same with Update Manager - currently it is PARTIALLY updating after a message about last update being corrupted or some packages are incorrect. It showed me list of updates available, but most of them where forced unticked. I am now updating the ones ticked.


    I will let you know how it went a bit later as my connection is slow.


    Thank you for your reply anyway. You were very reliable. I hope problems will be gone after the process finish.


    Kind regards.
