When upgrading from ubuntu 12.04 to 14.04..system installs upgrades and hangs at one or the other place....have tried it three times....here are the issues i face
- update installation fails at one or the other place
- there after system does not start and i have to go back to factory settings (12.04)
- cannot try this process repeatedly as first i have to upgrade 12.04 to latest then download 1900+ files for 14.04 and then installation starts which fails
- entire cycle takes 3-4 hours...
- have tried one suggested command to un-install cinnamon....did not work
plz suggest steps with complete instructions to upgrade from 12.04 to 14.04 (new to Linux)
or suggest a full proof process to move to 14.04 - format and direct installation tof 14.04 (if it is a sure shot process)
It stuck during installing upgrade at "Preparing fonts-khmeros-core" at terminal last line i see is "preparing to unpack..../fonts - lao_0.0.20060226-9_all.deb....."
Software index is broken - it is impossible to install or remove any software
