I upgraded to 12.10 in my quest to get to 14.04, but my computer (HP Pavilion dv 6c47cl) doesn't seem to like 12.10. It won't load to the gui, and so I am forced to go to the command line if I want to load ubuntu at all (and it still won't go to command line with startx).
I have tried upgrading from command line with the following commands:
(reports no new release found)
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
(this will start trying, but will ultimately fail because it encountered an error while processing, was unable to open a file, or some other reason) Now whenever I run
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/xserver-common_2%3a1.13.3-0ubuntu6.2_all.deb (--unpack): trying to overwrite '/var/lib/xkb/README.compiled', which is also in package xserver-common-lts-raring 2:1.13.3-0ubuntu6~precise3 No apport report written because MaxReports is reached already Errors were encountered while processing: /var/cache/apt/archives/xserver-common_2%3a1.13.3-0ubuntu6.2_all.deb E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
Any advice on things I can try to make the upgrade happen?
