Subject: 16.04 upgrade RIP.
Message-ID:
        <[hidden email]>
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="utf-8"

I attempted to upgrade 14.04 to 16.04 today but it was unsuccessful. So now
neither of them work. 13.04 still works but is a pale show of 14.04, patch
115.

Screen messages include:-

1. "Could not install 'ca--certificates' The upgrade will continue but the
'ca-certificates' may not be in a working state. Please consider submitting
a bug report about it.
[triggers looping abandoned].  [close]

2. Unable to update the static FcBlanks: 0x????

3.Replace the customised configuration file '/etc/sane/dll.conf'? Replace?
     Replaced!!

4. 'error in sharedoc'

5. Could not install upgrades. The upgrade has aborted. Your system could
be in an unusable state.[TRUE]. A recovery will run now (dpkg -configure-a)
[Close].

6 Upgrade complete. The upgrade has completed but there were errors during
the upgrade process. [Close]" end of messages.

Please help if possible, thank you.

one last resort strategy that can help:

Alt-F1 ... hopefully get a line mode console.
aptitude update
aptitude dist-upgrade

it may succeed, may fail, just keep doing it over and over again.

once in a while, throw in:
apt-get install -f

sometimes it will end with a short list of one or two packages that it
"can't" upgrade.  You get the same answer over and over again, where it
saya it can't upgrade x, y, and z.

try upgrading some subset of the ones listed:

apt-get install y

and that might break the look or dependency problem, then you just go back
to the:

aptitude update
aptitude dist-upgrade

(aptitude is better, but if you don't have it, use apt-get instead.)

this method might get you through it, even though it is kind of ugly...

Hello,

I had troubles with upgrades many moons ago.  I kindly suggest if you are
confident in your backups, never do an upgrade.  Ever.  Format your drive
while doing a new install.  Nothing is perfect and it never will be.  Too
many variables are added when doing an upgrade.  Cheers.

April fools!

You were not asked to use MIME digest to keep the thread.
You were not asked to not top post.
You were not asked to trim the post.
You were not asked to sent plain text.

The only request is to edit the subject, but even this seems to be too
much.

Pleas, next time at least edit the subject. You don't need to do this,
if you log into your Ubuntu user account and select MIME instead of
plain text digest. After doing this, you could reply to an individual
mail inside the digest. This keeps the thread, provides the original
subject and even without trimming the quoted mail, you only would quote
a single mail, IOW less unnecessary text.

This is _not_ an April fool hoax.

Regards,
Ralf

Homer, testing Floyd, said, "Five times nine", and Floyd instantly
responded "Forty-five", which impressed Homer.
