    7.04 Upgrade not working!

    Hi,
    I'm trying to upgrade the server here at work from 7.04 to 7.10 so I can then go to 8.04

    trouble is, when I try to use the gksu sh /cdrom/cdromupgrade it gets stuck half way through:

    Code:
    rob@moodlesvr:/cdrom$ sudo sh /cdrom/cdromupgrade 
    can't load DistUpgradeViewGtk (No module named Common.SimpleGladeApp)
    can't load DistUpgradeViewKDE (No module named qt)

        'Yes'

    Any thoughts anyone?

    Additionally; do-release-upgrade doesn't seem to work either just waits around at "Checking for a new ubuntu release"

    *screams*!

    -thanks
    Rob

    Did you download and burn the 7.10 Alternate Install CD, or the Live CD? The cdromupgrade script only works on the Alternate Install CD.

    The server CD, which has the script on it so I assume it works!

    I think I've managed to get it going now, for some reason it needed me to install gnome not very servery if you ask me!

    Above link provides a method of upgrade from 7.04 server to 7.10 server without use of a CD (click on link for server in box on right side of screen); I used this procedure to update server edition from 6.06 to 8.04 sequentially without burning a CD at all. It was successful, but it took some time. HTH.
