Finally trying to upgrade from 16.04 LTS to 17.04 (then to 17.10), but keep running into
"Can not updrade" "Your python install is corrupted. Pleas fix the '/usr/bin/python' symlink.
I have already changed the symlink from pointing to
/etc/alternatives/python, to pointing to
/usr/bin/python3.5, then later to pointing to
/usr/bin/python2.7, both times, forcing a reinstall of python along the way.
I keep getting the "Can not upgrade" message box. It is entirely possible there may be another issue, because along the way, it mentions
Failed to download repository information and to check the Internet connection. Then, when I click OK, the software updater repairs itself to inform me that my computer is up to date, but there is a new version...
Since I can get to this forum, I believe that my connection to the Internet is OK, unless the U.S Server is down at the moment.
Any thoughts welcomed...
