The upgrade to 13.10 stops after a lot of error messages about texlive packages, that I could close. The upgrade goes then further, but now it is stopped.

What can I do to initiate the process again?

Upgrading from 13.04 to 13.10 stops

The following are the last messages from the command window.:

The solution in my case was Ctrl+C. After that, the Update-Manager began to clean up the system and all was working fine after the upgrade was finished.

If your upgrade has stopped running: run sudo dpkg --configure -a and then run sudo apt-get install.

I had a similar problem with the saucy update freezing, and I have put the solution here. Incidentally Ramachandra Apte's solution is not complete.

Restarting update manager after freezing!
