I just updated a new laptop Ubuntu 12.10 install. Its been off for a week, and was only recently built.
I checked for updates, and about 80MBs of updates were found. After several minutes I saw an error, something about error with package. I don't have the details. I figured it would handle the error as needed and give me any necessary follow-up steps, like a mandatory roll-back or something.
Nothing happened when I clicked the OK button. The updates said a reboot was needed, so I did.
Since then there are no new updates. But how do I 1) determine what happened, and 2) if I need to repair something?
I checked in the dpkg.log file, but didn't notice any obvious error messages.
