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

I am on Ubuntu 10.10 and each time I boot my OS it asks me to if I want to update to 11.04. I click "yeah, why not". It downloads 2 files, asks my password and that's all. Nothing happens.

EDIT

Ok, I've ran sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade and get downloadings and settings and after few seconds it stops after

ldconfig deferred processing now taking place

It starts downloading. I'll write when something happen :) Thanx –  fl00r May 3 '11 at 20:44
    
Ok... It was fast: it stopped after ldconfig deferred processing now taking place. –  fl00r May 3 '11 at 20:45
    
Possibly you have either synaptic or update-manager running. if you run ps -ef | grep synaptic or ps -ef | grep update do you see more that one process running? –  fossfreedom May 3 '11 at 20:51
    
only update-notifier is working –  fl00r May 3 '11 at 20:54
    
What do you mean by "update-notifier" - make sure you close down all applications such as firefox? if you do a standard sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade does this complete OK? –  fossfreedom May 3 '11 at 20:58

OK, it appears your package management system is a little screwed up.

edit your sources.list and # out the following entry (it isnt a standard repository that I recognise):

sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list
#deb http://downloads-distro.mongodb.org/repo/ubuntu-upstart dist 10gen

save then

See if the following cleans up the package management system:

sudo dpkg --configure -a
sudo apt-get -f install
sudo apt-get --fix-missing install
sudo apt-get clean
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
sudo apt-get clean
sudo apt-get autoremove
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get --reinstall --purge install update-manager
update-manager

still the same situation –  fl00r May 3 '11 at 21:58
    
Looks I am going to just reinstall it from scratch –  fl00r May 3 '11 at 21:59
    
hmmm - I think you may be correct - If you've got an external drive/USB stick, backup your important files and do a fresh Natty install. –  fossfreedom May 3 '11 at 22:02
    
ok, thank you for your time! –  fl00r May 3 '11 at 22:05
