    shutdown after typing password to upgrade

    dear friends,

    my laptop is shutting down after i type in the password to start the upgrade.

    logs:

    syslog

    WARNING: Could not launch application 'gnome-user-share.desktop': Unable to start application: Failed to execute child process "/usr/lib/gnome-user-share/gnome-user-share" (No such file or directory)

    auth.log

    administrator : no tty present and no askpass program specified ; TTY=unknown ; PWD=/ ; USER=root ; COMMAND=/sbin/shutdown -h now

    same thing is happening when i start synaptic.

    please advise.

    thanks.

    If your 10.10 system is still working, my advice is to wait a couple of months before considering to switch to 11.04.

    When the time comes, best is to do a clean install rather than an online upgrade.
