View Full Version : [ubuntu] Upgade freeze at kernel 2.6.38-15

June 22nd, 2012, 02:33 PM
When I try to upgade my system using the upgrade tool, the download starts and some packages arrive. But now for several times the download of the kernel 2.6.38-15 freezes.
After cleanup, restart it, then freez at 41% 4 % 31 % and so on. Seems random.
Never comes to an happy end.

How can I solve this?

(some days ago I upgraded an other sytem with no problem to the same level.)

you can change to the main server into synaptic

Well, not much luck.
Changed to several servers, but all the same problem.
At last I ran the "best server" test and came to the dutch nl3.archive again.
Still the same problem. a freez when downloading the generic kernel. at random size...

Just tried an ftp server in germany, then it stops when kernel is at 44%.

I have read some time ago the provider at the user side was the problem.
If it is the problem in this ( mine ) case, how can we prove that?

Switched back to the main server, did a apt-get -clean. Started over and several packages get loaded,
then it stops at 36% in the linux kernel image again.
This is not just coincidence, I just can't believe it !

At last it finished downloading all files.
The kernel was the problem , why ?, it came in bursts, just like the download freezes, there came in another fewhundred bytes. and again......
Took about 5 minutes I think, then all other files rushed in , in one stream.

Very strange I never had this experience before.

Update has finished and system rebooted and is up again.
But if someone knows what happend in this download, I like to know.
