View Full Version : [ubuntu] Upgrade Failure

April 27th, 2010, 09:22 PM
Yesterday I decided to upgrade to 10.04.I used the update manager and it began the process. Once it downloaded everything and began installing a message showed saying the install couldn't complete due to something not being able to be installed (I cannot recall the exact wording) and it said this will leave your system unusable or something to that effect. It closed and I had to reinstall 9.10

I did a clean install of 9.10 and will likely stay here for a bit. Will I ever be able to istall 10.04 or am I stuck with 9.10 - and I like 9.10!

Of course.When Lucid becomes final you can upgrade via network (as you tried before).I prefer upgrade with alternate CD,because if anything goes wrong I always have CD and I'm able to do fresh install.Other people prefer other methods,so this is just a way I like doing upgrades.
