I'm trying to do an upgrade from 11.10 to 12.04, and getting stuck at the Installing the upgrades phase, in Preconfiguring package.... The terminal reports the following:

Gtk-WARNING **: Unable to locate theme engine in module_path: "pixmap", at /usr/share/perl5/Debconf/FrontEnd/Gnome.pm line 97, <> line 1621.
Gtk-WARNING **: Unable to locate theme engine in module_path: "pixmap", at /usr/share/perl5/Debconf/FrontEnd/Gnome.pm line 103, <> line 1621.
Extract templates from packages: 100%
Preconfiguring packages ...

It's been stuck here for over 16 hours! Any suggestions? I have at least 15GB free space so that is not the difficulty.

I encountered the same problem. But when I just about to abort the process, I saw a dialogue asking me to configure MySql's password. This dialogue was hidden and only showed up when I switched around with different application windows.
