I have decided to upgrade my Ubuntu 12.04 to 12.10. I had about 4.1GB space left on /. NOt until the last minute during the install phase did the upgrade manager ask me to make space on my drive. I started the software manager and now I can't get out of it back to continuing the upgrade. It keeps on asking me to repair the package catalogue, and has no x bar or button to close it, nor can I alt-tab to the updater window. I am stuck half way through an upgrade and can't get out. I have been a fan of ubuntu for years but after today I fear I have lost confidence.... Please someone help. How can they write software that allows this to happen. Should they be making sure there is adequate disk space before the upgrade. :mad:
