View Full Version : [ubuntu] Upgrade

Is there any way to back out of and upgrade that is not going well, The original OS is still operable but of course synaptic wants the upgrade to continue. The upgrade stalled after packages were downloaded and about 45 to 90 seconds into the install/upgrade. Is there a way to convince synaptic to abort the upgrade?

If it stalls during network download, then no upgrade has as yet occured. Ubuntu will download all the files first before applying them.

How do I tell synaptic I want to stop the upgrade. Whenever I invoke a command like apt-get it trys to dpkg again.

Kill synaptic.

Worst case, reboot the sucker.

Curious as to why it's failing, though.
