I am using ubuntu 10.04LTS and getting upgradation notice from update manager. Can anybody please indicate how much data is downloaded for the process?
Is there any way I can back up the existing installed programs along with add-ons or plugins and do a live CD installation and reinstall the previous programs, rather than upgrading directly from 10.04 to 12.04?
I have downloaded & burnt iso of Ubuntu v11.10 & was trying to upgrade my current installation (running v11.04) when i ran into a strange issue. The installer (when i boot from media) does not detect my existing Ubuntu setup. It detects my Windows 7 installation & gives me 3 choices but NO upgrade choice.
I created a USB startup disk from ISO and booted using that to upgrade my 11.10 installation. But when I am not able to select Upgrade from Ubuntu 11.10 to Ubuntu 12.04. The radio button cannot be selected. I am doing a Network upgrade now.
Now that Fedora 18, aka Spherical Cow, has been released, users of Fedora 17 will likely be gearing up to upgrade. Before this latest release, upgrading an installation of Fedora requires a procedure that’s not very elegant.
With Fedora 18, the recommended upgrade tool is called FedUp (FEDora UPgrade).
I was using Ubuntu 13.04 and tried upgrading to 13.10. It finished the downloading pretty well and was in the installation phase when power suddenly went off. Now i have a partial installation in that some programs are not running and some graphics are just invincible. Note: I don't have a backup of my 13.04. Please help.
