http://ubuntuforums.org – My upgrade manager prompted me for an upgrade to 12.10 from 12.04. So, clicked on upgrade. It has been 4+ hours now and the system is still trying to upgrade. The progress bar is still at around 10%. So, it may take more than 24 hours to upgrade. This compared to a clean build which might have taken less than an hour. I wish Ubuntu should have warned of the amount of time it may take (or likely to take) for an upgrade. Looks like the upgrade mechanism touches all the 50000 files that system uses. Anybody facing the same issue or am I doing something wrong here ?:mad: (Hardware)
