Upgrade manager wants me to do a partial upgrade

I recently attempted to upgrade my 11.04 to 11.10, but the upgrade failed. Now whenever I open the update-manager it asks to do a partial upgrade. Is there a way to get it to upgrade or atleast stop it from asking about the partial upgrade?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Try opening terminal and enter:

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get -f install

This should fix any previously interrupted update process and if possible continue with updating.


What happens if you try:

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade

I get this: "E: Could not perform immediate configuration on 'util-linux'. Please see man 5 apt.conf under APT::Immediate-Configure for details. (2)" – Gamegoofs2 Sep 15 '11 at 2:15
