    Question Error while updating from 12.04 to 12.10

    Hi,

    I was trying to update my laptop from ubuntu 12.04 to 12.04 and unfortunately in between it ran out of power. Now there are lot of errors and gnome is not loading. I am able to access the terminal and lxde desktop. I have tried executing the following commands and most of them result in "Processing was halted because there were too many errors".

    sudo dpkg --configure -a
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo dpkg --clear-avail
    sudo apt-get clean
    sudo apt-get upgrade

    and the aptitude versions of the above.

    Any help appreciated

    To be honest, in this situation I'd backup important stuf and do a clean install of 12.10

    Hi,

    Thank you for your reply. There will be a lot of problems if I do that. Is there no other way?

    Try
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install -f
    Then
    Code:
    sudo dpkg --configure -a
    Post back the errors.

    Maybe something here.
    http://serverfault.com/questions/854...bution-upgrade

    Interesting option there in the link sudo dpkg --configure -a --abort-after=99999

    [edit] from the man page.
    --abort-after=number
    Change after how many errors dpkg will abort. The default is 50.
    I'd still backup important stuff while you can get in.

    What does this spit out.

    Code:
    sudo do-release-upgrade
    There maybe an option to resume/resurrect the upgrade. Clutching at straws here.

    It sounds well and truly borked.
