View Full Version : [ubuntu] Why is it that the Update Manager always freezes my system?

May 7th, 2009, 12:22 AM
Whenever I run the update manager on my Jaunty version, it always freezes my system.
I will reboot, using the magic SysRq key, but only SysRq+B does anything (there is no activity on my hard drive for anything else).
When I boot up again, the mouse doesn't work, the cursor just sits there, Ctrl+Alt+F1 doesn't work, sometimes I can't even use the login box.
I have tried to update, but I have to keep reinstalling.
Could it have to do with the RC? I downloaded a Release Candidate CD and installed via that, and tried to install updates as they came along, but it freezes my system.

please, anyone.
I have a science project to do and I can't do it with a broken system.
