View Full Version : [ubuntu] Update Manager hangs when upgrading from Gutsy to Heron

April 24th, 2008, 06:14 PM

I'm trying to use Update Manager to upgrade from 7.10 to 8.04. It just keeps causing the app to hang and I have to force a quit. I've got all the latest updates for Gutsy, I can't think of any other option than to try an .iso install. Can't really be bothered burning a disc though!

Any suggestions? Is this a known issue?

The servers are probably swamped. I'm going to wait a few days before I try. If you want to try to download an iso and install without burning it there are instructions here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=286092

Or just be patient :)

Try torrents. They are very fast. I upgraded using torrents and have listed the steps here: http://ptcbus.blogspot.com/2008/04/upgrading-from-ubuntu-710-gutsy-gibbon.html
