    Failed upgrade from 7.10

    I have decided to upgrade from

    Code:
    dan@Linux:~$ cat /etc/lsb-release
    DISTRIB_ID=Ubuntu
    DISTRIB_RELEASE=7.10
    DISTRIB_CODENAME=gutsy
    DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION="Ubuntu 7.10"
    to the newest version
    so I ran the following

    sudo apt-get update

    Wild guess:

    Code:
    sudp dpkg --configure sysvinit-utils && sudo apt-get install -f
    Good luck.

    Re: Failed upgrade from 7.10

    Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but you can't upgrade from 7.10 to the latest version. You have to be at 8.10? Again, I may be wrong as I don't do upgrades. I always recommend in all my posts regarding upgrades that they not be done. They tend to break things, and a clean install is often faster / less breakages. Don't take my word, do a search around the forums (which you've already done so I'm sure you know about it now!)

    In your situation as it is, I personally would now back up my /home directory and do a clean install.

    Clean install FTW but I'm going to try and help him out best I can.

    Re: Failed upgrade from 7.10

    Direct upgrade from 7.10 to 8.10 isn't supported; if you are going to do "network upgrades", need to move from 7.10 to 8.04 to 8.10 sequentially. If you want to go to 8.10 from 7.10, a fresh install is the way to do it, as set out supra.

    Well I mean I could guide him through on nursing his computer along from 7.10 to 8.10. Not rocket science.

    Exactly. It's already messed up. Can't get any worse. I would rather just do a clean install though.

    Re: Failed upgrade from 7.10

    I guess I should have mentioned that this is server edition. This machine is a internal webserver that houses over 3000 records of current and past orders as well as our entire inventory database

    while the database is backed up nightly having it down is not an option at this point and unfortunatly putting this together was a learning experiance and I am quite certain that I do not remember what I did to get it running with itself let alone our windows 2003 server.
    its currently sitting at 239 days uptime due my companys reliance on this machine being up at all times
