    Re: 13.04 upgrade boot failure

    Upgrades have always been less sucessful than installs for me but if if i wanted to go from 12.04 to 13.04 it would definitely be tried in two distinct separate steps, 12.04 to 12.10 and then 12.10 to 13.04.

    Jonor is correct , did you preform two upgrades . There are vast differences in packages between 12.04 and 13.04.
