View Full Version : [ubuntu] upgrade from 8.04 to 8.10 7 minutes remaining forever

Chugging along then it froze in "Installing the updgrades"

Setting up wu-ftpd(2.6.2-30ubuntu1)

Really just on my way through to 9.04 or so I had hoped.

The machine is off the net (though the nm-applet is still showing four bars) or I would post a screen shot. Not reading the usb/thumbdrive either.

Should I just hit Control-C. (I've done that and do get the warning that it may leave the system in a broken state but too chicken to go for it).

Memory down to 19904k free, but lots of swap left.

Upgrade continuing nicely, though it seems stuck on "7 minutes"
