But the upgrade also made Update Manager disappear for some reason. It really shouldn't have happened. To get Update Manager back, run the following commands from terminal:
~$ sudo apt-get install readline-common
~$ sudo apt-get install update-manager
You'll need the Dapper CD for this. Unfortunately, you still can't run the upgrade. Update Manager tries to upgrade through the Internet which fails, and getting packages from CD doesn't seem to look very promising either with a long list of packages that cannot be upgraded. Attempts to run the cdromupgrade script that made its debut in Edgy fails with a "can't find distUpgradeViewGtk" error. Not very comforting.
Add in the fact that Dapper regressed to Warty's behaviour of not suggesting an upgrade, or starting package manager and it's the worst upgrade, so far.
Unfortunately, things don't go smoothly from there. The upgrade appeared to go smoothly but I got dumped to terminal on reboot. I had to fix things from there.
|Got dumped to terminal; installing ubuntu-desktop|
~$ sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop~$ sudo reboot
|Firefox 2.0 in Edgy Eft|
Finally, I get to see the Ubuntu desktop. Just to be sure I get as many Edgy packages install as possible, I run one final command:
~$ sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
That should do it.
