View Full Version : [ubuntu] [SOLVED] Really slooooow 8.10 upgrade

October 30th, 2008, 08:28 PM
Question- I am at work and started my upgrade process, but I don't want to leave my laptop here...looks like it's going to take several hours to complete...so if I were to cancel the upgrade, would I mess up the 8.04 version? If it wouldn't affect anything would I need to do some cleaning up to make sure it was wiped clean? I figure it would be better to wait a few weeks when I have more time and less traffic. Any thoughts???

As long as it's in the downloading stage you're fine. Just kill it and start the upgrade again later.

If it's actually applying the updates, let'er roll.

Right now it's at the "getting new packages" stage...is that okay to kill it?

I stopped the upgrade where it was at with no ill affects...thanks for the help.
