View Full Version : [ubuntu] Upgrade to natty fails (ubuntu, kubuntu, xubuntu installed)

April 29th, 2011, 09:26 AM
Hi all,

I have a problem, because installation of ubuntu 11.04 will fail if I try to.

I have also Kubuntu and Xubuntu installed, which I regret a lot because I cannot uninstall them as well...

The problem is that I have installed a one-time-activation proprietary software so a fresh install is no option.

The error when upgrading is, that "xubuntu-desktop" cannot be marked for upgrade!

Thanks for help, grz ppocket

I was having the same issue and what worked for me was to un-install Xubuntu-desktop via the command line:

sudo aptitude remove xubuntu-desktop

After that I restarted the Upgrade Manager and am currently 30% done with my upgrade.
