Packages currently installed with new versions available are retrieved and upgraded; under no circumstances are currently installed packages removed, or ...

If you have the installation media you originally used. You could boot from that to the live session, the chroot in to your installed system. FYI sudo apt-get update Only refreshes the sources So it's not clear what kind of upgrade you are telling us about. Once chroot I would suggest doing: sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Over the past few days I've been upgrading a system from 12.10 -> 13.04 -> 13.10 -> 14.04.1LTS, one upgrade per day, and it was only the last stage it complained about sysctl.conf. I think what is going on is that between 13.10 to 14.04 someone added a full stop at the end of one of the comments! That is enough to get it to start complaining. As muru's ...

You can not directly upgrade from 14.10 to 15.10 If you want to go from 14.10 directly to 15.10 you need to re-install. You can upgrade from 14.10 to 15.04, and then from 15.04 to 15.10 When 14.10 expires, support on Ask Ubuntu ends When 14.10 expires, you do not get any more updates. If you can live with that you can keep using 14.10 till the end of the ...

I have the same issue. During initial installation, the system would have asked you to save the recovery disk. eg. flash device or disk etc. If you had done this, then use the flash device to boot. (At boot, change boot order - for me it was F12 key). You can recover either the OS or the entire disk. But I don't know if I should upgrade to 14.04 LTS now. ...

I don't know what the Upgrade will do with the Windows files, but I am quite sure that it will restore the boot loader to Microsoft, so your GRUB boot menu will be gone and the machine would boot straight into Windows, I suppose.

For anyone stumbling across this question, it seems the underlying problem was I'd run out of disk space part way through a kernel update, so the initrd image file hadn't been created.

If don't wish to keep your 12.04 user data you can create a bootable USB/CD of 14.10 then install it over the top of your 12.04 partition. If you do want to keep your data..

it depends on how you have your version of Ubuntu installed. If it's on a separate partition, you could just get the installation on a disk and run the installation and just run it under 'upgrade.' It will then do the update from there off of the disk itself. You could also just install over the older version with the newer version of ubuntu. WARNING! if you ...
