I am having trouble installing either Ubuntu or Xubuntu 14.04 or even upgrading to Ubuntu 14.04. I get a consistent result which is that once the system gets to the login screen or, if I'm booting from a live CD, when I get to the desktop, my system will reboot automatically.
I was able to install Ubuntu 13.10 with no problems. I tried upgrading via the Software Updater, when the process finished it presented a warning about the process halted because too many errors occurred. It looked like it had something to do with
dpkg processing errors, but I'm not sure since I'm still new to Linux in general.
I used to run Ubuntu 14.04 on this same system and removed it to try Fedora 20, but now it won't work when I try to re-install. My CPU is AMD A10-6800K APU with Radeon(tm) HD Graphics on a MSI FM2-A85XA-G43 motherboard. I do not have a screenshot of the error, but I wonder if anyone has seen this type of problem before. I will add a screenshot when I have time to try again.
UPDATE I just ran the install disc on my older HP Pavilion P7-1010-PC and the installation is going through just fine.
