Hello

I have just upgraded from 7.10 to 8.04 via the update manager.

All went well until the end of the install when the process did not seem to finish correctly. All the installation of packages was completed, then I got a message saying there was a problem upgrading VirtualBox, which could be resolved later.

I closed the error box, and the update window then closed without 'Cleaning Up' or prompting me to restart.

So I restarted as there was nothing else I could do, and Ubuntu booted up ok.

However, I am unable to update, as I get this error message in both the Update Manager and Terminal (after sudo apt-get update):


E: dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem.


I tried running dpkg --configure -a as suggested, but got this:

gzip: stdout: No space left on device
update-initramfs: failed for /boot/initrd.img-2.6.24-16-generic
dpkg: subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 1

Can anyone out there help me out on this issue, or will I have to do a fresh install?

Also, at the Grub boot-up the old kernel is still there as a choice. I presume this should have been removed after the upgrade?

Thanks for any advice.
