View Full Version : [ubuntu] Upgrading From 9.04 to 9.10; Upgrade Tool Frozen

December 30th, 2009, 02:58 AM
Hi guys,

Today I decided to upgrade from 9.04 to 9.10. Everything was working fine...the Upgrade Tool got to "Fetching Packages" and spent a couple hours downloading all 1427 packages.

The progress bar is full, and beneath it it says "fetching file 1427 of 1427" but the ETA has gone away, as if the download was complete.

Anyway to get this to move on to the "Installing The Updates" step without having to re-download everything?

Thanks in advance for your help.

As far as I know, your upgrade failed!!! this happened to me 3 times when upgrading to Karmic 9.10, cancel it and try all over again. If you are using a laptop it is better if you connect via ethernet cable (meaning wired) This is how I was able to upgrade faster and everything went pretty smooth......

Ah, I am on a laptop using WiFi.

I will connect with a cable and try again when I feel like going through all that mess again. Haha.
