View Full Version : [ubuntu] Installation problems

July 6th, 2011, 01:53 PM
Previous installation hasn't been completed

The installation could have failed because of an error in the corresponding software package or it was cancelled in an unfriendly way. You have to repair this before you can install or remove any further software.

Last night i kinda started installing a couple of things but i had some electricity problems and my pc restarted. Well .... since then i cannot install anything because of this error. Can anyone help me ? Pwlease ? :)

Hi and welcome to the forums Akazuk :)

which version of Wubi did you install?

Open a Nautilus File Browser and click on "File System" in the left pane. Now open the "host" folder. That's your Windows C: drive. Other drives should be listed in the "media" folder.
