Checking for installed snaps

Installing snap gnome-3-26-1604

Please refer to the image below: image

It's been two hours at this point already.

  • gnome-3-26-1604 is obsolete in 18.04 and has been replaced by gnome-3-28-1804. I suggest that you ignore the error message and continue with the upgrade. After rebooting remove the gnome-3-26-1604 snap package and replace it with gnome-3-28-1804. That's what I did after upgrading to 18.04. You might also need to run Boot-Repair because grub hasn't been upgraded yet. – karel Jun 14 '19 at 5:58
  • it's not an error message, the installation wont progress. What should i do? – devTrix Jun 14 '19 at 6:03
  • It's just hanging there @karel – devTrix Jun 14 '19 at 6:03
  • I would let it run, the release-upgrade can take a long time especially on less powerful hardware, or limited devices (x86 or low ram). I would probably log in to a terminal, and check you have sufficient free space on / too. – guiverc Jun 14 '19 at 6:08
  • i rebooted it and typed sudo apt-get dist-upgrade --fix-missing at the terminal is this ok? @guiverc – devTrix Jun 14 '19 at 6:16
