If you want to upgrade, then use do-release-upgrade from terminal or update from update manager or from an iso image (offline n safer option...in case u drop internet connection in between) u will not have to reinstall any software if you fresh install overwriting the previous version, then you have to reinstall all the software

Do not upgrade your Ubuntu release if you installed it with WUBI. WUBI is only mean for testing Ubuntu on your PC. If you wish to fully use Ubuntu and make future upgrades in the future then please make a real install, make a partition destined only for ubuntu. Repeat, do not atempt to upgrade your ubuntu release if you installed it with WUBI. WUBI is also ...

The upgrade does run an update-grub but it does not replace the main bootloader and maintains that configuration and such, though my recommendation is that you actually use sudo do-release-upgrade as I've had problems with the gui crashing and leaving the update running but not completely.

The upgrade won't touch Windows. However, it will need plenty of free space - upwards of 3GB. So if you have the free space, go on ahead.

I would recommend Upgrading to newer version because 14.04 is too good than 12.04. A number of tweaks added to Unity desktop in 14.04. I found 14.04 more solid than previous LTS release for myself.

No need to burn a disk, if you want to upgrade. sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade or: sudo apt-get && sudo apt-get upgrade updates and upgrade option will be available system setting if you don't want to go through the terminal. or: sudo do-release-upgrade if you do.

I agree if it's not broke don't fix it since that release has 5 years support. If there is a feature on 14.04 that is being eyeballed or just want most up to date then do the following command after making a backup if feels necessary even. sudo update-manager -d

Please be advised, that many of us are experiencing that same error as you have reported. It is not directly related to how your system is running presently, and thus, if you are satisfied otherwise that your system has returned to normal, breathe freely. This error has been reported as related to Samba and is being addressed. You can google that error ...

Yes, / is root, and /udisk means put it in the folder udisk, which you will see when you open the USB. Can you not simply copy them?

In the past I have had difficulties in getting Linux OS to upgrade from one release to the next. What I usually do is backup anything special in the old version and then install the new OS level from scratch. In general, I find this to be the cleaner and less problem-filled route (i.e. more time for me to enjoy the new OS, less fiddling around with strange ...

The login screen is called greeter in Ubuntu. While I can't think of exact fix, I can suggest a work-around. Basic idea is changing the greeter. Now, depending on which desktop manager program you are using , the configuration settings will be different. I assume you have lightdm manager, which is default that comes with Ubuntu. Here's procedure for ...

Since you have said that you have manually installed some packages, these lines from the error messages: dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of libssl-dev: libssl-dev depends on libssl1.0.0 (= 1.0.1-4ubuntu5.14); however: Version of libssl1.0.0 on system is 1.0.1-4ubuntu5.17. dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of ...

apt-get autoremove apt-get -f install Picked out from your text seems to be quite appropriate... Have you tried that? If all goes well: 3. apt-get update && apt-get upgrade ... may be in place. Edit your post and add a <hr> tag to the end of it, then add more text to answer this / tell what went wrong.

Turns out I didn't have vim, just had vi, due to dependency issues after the upgrade. tl;dr; - needed older versions of dependencies. Fixed with: $ sudo apt-get remove vim-common $ sudo apt-get remove vim-runtime $ sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install vim Change .vimrc setting "set filetype off" => "filetype off" Full Version... ...

Although you are running the version codenamed Precise, you attempted to install the backports version for Lucid. It isn't available in the Precise repositories. I suggest you try: sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install linux-backports-modules-cw-3.12-precise-generic sudo modprobe ath9k Your wireless should now be working.

Is your wired network working? There's a solution for your problem in this thread. Instead of upgrading to the unsupoorted, older 12.10, you should rather upgrade to 14.04, which is the current long term supported release. The newer kernel in 14.04 might fix a few of your issues. Here's a howto

As mentionned in the comment above, the second issue was resolved. I run, then, apt-get update && apt-get upgrade. After reboot, the probleb the "Failed To Start Session".

Edit /etc/update-manager/release-upgrades and set: Prompt=never In the [DEFAULT] section (Use sudo with your favourite editor). And never run update-manager with -d. That checks for the next development release available and overrides the above setting.

Will upgrading to "Ubuntu 14.04 'Trusty Tahr'" affect the softwares I mentioned above? Yes, you get newer versions. In general it means better version with bug fixes and new options. Sometimes something gets removed though that is being used by a person but that happens not too often. For PHP and anything important I would suggest to search for the ...

I dont think you can upgrade that far 08.10 is 6 years old, there is no chance the servers are been maintained for this, You need do do a clean install of 14.04.

Backing up your home directory should be sufficient to keep your personal data. If for some reason you have please files in other areas on your file system apart from it's defaults, it's something you may have continuously specified, you should back that up also. Upgrading on Ubuntu is failrly safe. But it's possible that you can incur some problems from ...

You mentioned having tried most of the cli's to resolve apt-get issues. You might first try: $ sudo apt-get dist-upgrade After that, try going thought your list again with these included: $ sudo apt-get autoremove $ sudo apt-get --purge remove && sudo apt-get autoclean $ sudo apt-get -f install $ sudo apt-get update $ sudo apt-get upgrade ...

If you upgrade through the update manager, all of your files and currently installed programs will be preserved. They will, however, be updated to their latest versions. Additionally, it will typically ask you at the end if you would like to remove old, obsolete packages that are no longer maintained. I usually answer yes, but you can answer no if you ...

I found the solution... Neither the code nor the packages have problem... The problem is between Iran(the country i live in) and Google. The repositories from Google wouldn't allow the 'apt-get update' run successfully (due to the SANCTIONS!:D), so i unchecked the repositories from Google in my software center and everything went right after that...

For the future it would be a great idea to use TimeSift. You can do backups and in your situation it would be helpful. I swear on this program. It saved my Ubuntu-PC a few times. I hope for you someone can help you anyway.

The upgrade itself from 12.04 to 14.04.1 won't change anything that's in your home folder. However, when you boot into 14.04.1, changes might be made by the programs in that release. Therefore, any folders (or lack thereof) in your home directory won't impact the upgrade. The most likely reason that your .gnupg folder isn't getting backed up by the backup ...

I will add this incase someone faces similar issues. I tried all the uninstalling and re-installing to no avail.

Edit /etc/update-manager/release-upgrades and set (in the [DEFAULT] section): Prompt=lts Since this MOTD is shown to you, the package update-manager-core is likely installed in your system. If not, install it first.

It's a bug in libpam-smbpass. You can get rid of it, the only thing it does is that it forces sync between the samba and unix password on login: sudo apt-get remove libpam-smbpass sudo service netatalk restart And you're golden again.

Yes, Ubuntu's own site states that you should perform a regular update before upgrading your distro. Furthermore, from personal experience, if you don't update beforehand the distro upgrade with have to perform the updates anyway. Part of upgrading distros is updating mass amounts of packages.

I think it's better to install Ubuntu tweak and remove old kernels through it. It does it automatically for you. You have to go to Janitor tab and select old kernel. Then hit clean button and you are ready... :)

That's the main problem: No space left on device It's your /boot partition that has no more space left. Try to do this: Delete the unused kernel images manually. But, take care to not delete the used one or you will not be able to boot anymore. Type uname -r in a terminal. All that contains this version string must not be deleted. When you cleaned the ...

To upgrade to a new release you need to use sudo do-release-upgrade as sudo apt-get upgrade and sudo apt-get dist-upgrade just update all packages.

Thanks for providing all the additional information you have provided so far. It's strange that Ubuntu doesn't seem to be providing any more helpful information than "Could not calculate the upgrade". What would be nice is if it told us what packages could not be upgraded. As part of the release upgrade, Ubuntu does the equivalent of a regular apt-get ...

I have had the update manager fail on me on a few occasions as well (e.g. when running out of free disk space). In most (if not all) cases I was able to restart it and finish the upgrade without any problems. Note that I didn't reboot the machine in this half-upgraded state. I can imagine that that would break it. So, no guarantees, but simply exiting the ...

The problem is that after the upgrade zfs thinks that this is a different server. You should be able to fix it by simply exporting and then importing the pool. sudo zpool export naspool1 sudo zpool import naspool1 Most likely the import will complain that the "pool may be in use by another system, use -f to import it anyway". Use -f to do the import: ...

If one of your 3 disks is not in use * install ubuntu 14.04 onto that and * put the bootloader on that disk, too. In case you need some partitions on each disk, use gparted and * try to move data to another partition or * delete corrupt partitions (e.g. the swap?), create a separate one for swap and / and install there. Maybe try ubuntu gnome if you ...

try running sudo update-manager -d or if you've started the update already and things broke down it's likely ubuntu already disabled all the repos that are giving you issues so do sudo apt-get update;sudo apt-get dist-upgrade good luck!

You can also try one of the many Lightweight Linux distribution, see list below, and make sure, that your hardware requirements are met, before deciding on one of the distros. I also suggest you to definitely buy another "1GB of RAM block" on ebay for a small amount of money, so you can't go wrong with Lightweight Linux and also it is a huge improvement in ...

You can install it from both USB or CD - it's up to you. You will get the Documentation and guideline on the official Ubuntu site here.

I expect this is because the default versions of Django in 12.04 and 14.04 are two years apart. You've gone from 1.3 to 1.6. There are some significant changes: 1.4 release notes 1.5 release notes 1.6 release notes You need to pay particular notice to the "Backwards incompatible changes" section in each of these release notes. Most won't apply but some ...
