Last night I attempted to upgrade from 15.04 to 15.10. Everything went fine until the installer got to the
Installing the upgrades step, where it hangs (stops progress) at
Installed libxfce4ui-1-0 (i386). The terminal pops up, the last line of which is
Found memtest86+ image: /boot/memtest86+.bin. I also have ~50% iowait on my processor, so I let it sit overnight to see if it could figure out what it needs to do. No change. I also don't see anything obvious going on background-wise.
Here's something from
2015-10-23 08:23:50,551 WARNING no activity on terminal for 300 seconds (Installed libxfce4ui-1-0 (i386))
Here's everything from
Found initrd image: /boot/initrd.img-3.19.0-26-generic Found linux image: /boot/vmlinuz-3.19.0-25-generic Found initrd image: /boot/initrd.img-3.19.0-25-generic Found linux image: /boot/vmlinuz-3.19.0-15-generic Found initrd image: /boot/initrd.img-3.19.0-15-generic Found memtest86+ image: /boot/memtest86+.elf Found memtest86+ image: /boot/memtest86+.bin
Those are all the clues I know how to gather at this point. Any help will be appreciated.
The strange thing is that I didn't even know I had XFCE installed since I always use Unity. Is there a way to tell the installer to skip this step without aborting the installation and as a consequence completely breaking my installation? Thank you in advance.
According to Upgrade hangs on ttf-mscorefonts-installer, the command
ps -ejHf can be used to gather some more clues as to what might be wrong. For instance,
ps -ejHf | grep wily returns:
root 5417 4359 2602 2602 0 Oct22 ? 00:04:22 /usr/bin/python3 /tmp/ubuntu-release-upgrader-e76uh732/wily --mode=server --frontend=DistUpgradeViewGtk3 root 26681 5417 26681 26681 1 Oct22 pts/1 00:11:28 /usr/bin/python3 /tmp/ubuntu-release-upgrader-e76uh732/wily --mode=server --frontend=DistUpgradeViewGtk3
That's not terribly useful, but at least it's something.
