Box type: Dell Inspiron E1505 with a Core2Duo and 2GB RAM
Problem history: I recently upgraded my machine from a 12.04 to a 14.04. Everything went smooth and within a few hours, I was prompted to upgrade to 16.04 but the upgrade to 16.04 and I lost all my data (which is fine since I backed up all my files). Having no 16.04 or 14.04 installation disks, I reinstalled 12.04 and tried going through the same process again but was unable to upgrade to even 14.04. But I was lucky the third time around and I have a working machine with 14.04 now.
- Why could this be happening?
- Should I try installing Ubuntu 16.04 through an installing disc instead?
