Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have been upgrading to 12.10 beta 1 but ran into a issue, it asked which version of update manager I would like to use but when I pressed details (D) for more info it got stuck at that screen and I don’t know how to get it updating again.

Here is the current terminal output

    100

What can I do to get it started again? I now know I want to use the non LTS (12.10) update manager.

This really should have been reported as a bug on launchpad. –  fossfreedom Sep 18 '12 at 14:26
