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

I used the software updater to run the upgrade from Ubuntu 12.10 (64bit) to 13.04.

Part way through the upgrade it failed with the following error message:

The package linux-image-extra-3.5.0-28-generic needs to be reinstalled, but I can't find an archive for it.

I can restore from a back up, but wondered if there is a more simple solution.
