I recently installed 8.04 on my desktop machine.
On Fri, I used the update manager to 'try' to upgrade.
After a number of hours, I got a message (that I haven't saved, sorry) to the effect that it had failed and I needed to do
dpkg --configure -a
So I did that and it falls over, So I did
dpkg --configure -a >& update_errors.txt. (see attached)
Now when I try to connect I get an Error Message
"Your session only lasted ..." -
I have attached a copy of the .Xsession-errors files.
I was going to try to simply install 8.10, but this machine has no DVD drive anymore.
Is there an upgrade that works?
What do you do when the fix (apt-get --configure -a ) seems to break more things.
How do I get back, forward to a point of some stability?
I use NIS here and that was also broken during the update.
I am currently using ssh to log onto the machine to fix things.
I had hoped that this would be relatively painless, guess we're not there yet.
