As the title says, I have tried to upgrade to Ubuntu 13.10 by LiveUSB and the install has frozen at 'Restoring Previously Installed Packages'. Has been stuck at this point for almost 2 hours.. When I expand the terminal for the install details, nothing seems to be downloading (which could cause this time delay) and the only activity is from when I connected and disconnected from the wireless network..

Any suggestions?

I got this as well. However, in my case it did complete some hour or two later, so I have no idea why this took so long. – tudor Oct 18 '13 at 0:49
