    Errors while upgrading from 21.04

    ***Title should be: "Errors while upgrading from 21.04"***

    My headless Hirsute Hippo install has been running fine (used as a Folding@Home rig as well as file server). I went to upgrade it to 21.04 (I usually keep it up to date, but had been busy in April), and once it starts trying to download files, it gets a slew of error messages about permissions as it is checking for partial downloads. There are no partial downloads, and the machine is up to date on Hirsute. Any ideas?

    Seeing the errors will be most informative

    Post back the outputs of the terminal commands:
    sudo apt update
    sudo apt full-upgrade
    sudo dpkg -C
    and we see where we go from here.

    a line of text beats my crystal ball every time
    THE current(cy) in Documentation:

    Happy ubuntu'n !
