    Re: Upgrade from 7.10 -> 8.04 hangs as soon as it begins

    Just for kicks, here is the code when the graphical interface is used

    2008-04-26 17:27:04,781 INFO release-upgrader version '0.87.24' started
    2008-04-26 17:27:05,164 DEBUG Using 'DistUpgradeViewGtk' view

    From there it just hangs.

    Giving this a bump for a different crowd--anyone else having this problem?

    By doing some more searching, I found this post:

    http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php...7&postcount=16

    That seems to be doing it for me--I'll post back once it is finished.

    I have same problem. I try to upgrade 7.10(ThinkPad R60) by 8.04 DVD. Distribution Upgrade hangs showing "Checking package manager" label under progress bar.

    Yup, having the same freeze on my old ancient IBM T22. Unfortunately the DVD route is not possible for me as this old thing is so tired and ancient the Ultrabay drive hasn't worked for ages.

    I guess I'll stick with 7.10 then

    Happens to me, too. Hangs as soon as it starts on a Dell Inspiron 600m, but it worked flawlessly on a no-name white box. Both systems were running fully updated Gutsy yesterday.

    Now it's working with the text front-end, but not the GUI front-end. The only thing I did different was use "sudo su -" to get a real root login.

    I experience a similar problem, and tried to start the upgrade from the terminal to see if any errors came up and here is what I get :

    Code:
    pierre@nubuntu:~$ gksu 'update-manager -d'
    warning: could not initiate dbus
    extracting '/tmp/tmpcbxGmC/hardy.tar.gz'
    authenticate '/tmp/tmpcbxGmC/hardy.tar.gz' against '/tmp/tmpcbxGmC/hardy.tar.gz.gpg'
    Not sure if this is important or symptomatic.

    I booted on the live CD to check if the new version worked fine on that PC and it did. So I'm now frustrated.

    Anybody knows how to resolve this ?

    I'm having a similar problem. My upgrade hangs while trying to set up a program called chillispot. I've stopped and retried twice now. I'm frustrated. Help?

    EDIT 2 May 2008
    I got it. I had to go into aptitude in command line and kill the installation of chillispot. Then I was forced to configure a number of libraries by hand (dpkg --configure) to get out of dependency hell.

    But hey, it's working. And miraculously, sound is working on my laptop for the first time since I got rid of Vista. I'd tried everything to get it to work. So kudos on that, Ubuntu team. YouTube isn't any good without sound.

    Same problem on a laptop (Toshiba Satellite M50). No problem on a vanilla PC.
    I'm doing apt-get dist-upgrade as root now and it seems to be working though I won't know for about 10 hours.
    It appears that before the GUI upgrade freezes it gets as far as writing a new /etc/apt/sources.list and saves the old so if you don't have the Hardy CD you may have to comment out the CD source line.
