I was trying to upgrade my Lenovo T500 laptop from Kubuntu 12.04 LTS to Kubuntu 14.04 LTS.
Fired up the upgrade process, and finally after downloading a zillion packages the upgrade got going, only to get stuck...
It has been stuck for hours on:
Installing the upgrades->Unpacking subversion
Last lines of error messages:
GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: /build/buildd/glib2.0-2.32.4/./gobject/gtype.c:2722: You forgot to call g_type_init() at /usr/lib/perl/5.18/DynaLoader.pm line 207. GLib-CRITICAL **: g_once_init_leave: assertion `result != 0' failed at /usr/lib/perl/5.18/DynaLoader.pm line 207.
I don't care much about subversion anymore, I use git now; I don't care if subversion ends up in a bad state and I have to remove it...
I just want the upgrade to continue, and hopefully complete.
