View Full Version : [ PARTIALLY SOLVED ] Cannot upgrade to gutsty gibbon, Almost there !!
Oct 27th 2007, 01:20 AM
I have not been able to upgrade to gutsy gibbon.
I am current on Kubuntu Fiesty Fawn.
1. I have applied all the available updates using Adept Updater and currently it does not show any more new upgrades. No option to upgrade to gutsy.
2. I downloaded and burned the Kubuntu Alternate CD for gutsy and i get the following error while trying to run cdromupgrade.
:~# sh /media/k710/cdromupgrade
/var/lib/python-support/python2.5/gtk-2.0/gtk/__init__.py:69: GtkWarning: could not open display
/tmp/tmp.NHGPa15786/DistUpgradeViewGtk.py:347: GtkWarning: gtk_icon_theme_get_for_screen: assertion `GDK_IS_SCREEN (screen)' failed
icons = gtk.icon_theme_get_default()
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/tmp/tmp.NHGPa15786/gutsy", line 57, in <module>
view = view_class(logdir=logdir)
File "/tmp/tmp.NHGPa15786/DistUpgradeViewGtk.py", line 349, in __init__
gtk.window_set_default_icon(icons.load_icon("update-manager", 32, 0))
AttributeError: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'load_icon'
Can anyone please help ?

Press Alt+F2 and type the command
kdesu "adept_manager --version-upgrade"
See if that helps any . . .
Note: the quotation (" ") marks are important in this case :)

The upgrade tool launched .. and was proceeding until it stopped with the following error.
Failed to fetch http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/feisty/universe/binary-amd64/Packages.gz Sub-process gzip returned an error code (1)
Failed to fetch http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/feisty/main/binary-amd64/Packages.gz Sub-process gzip returned an error code (1)
Could be something trivial.. am searching .. haven't got anything yet.

Let me know how it goes.
Note: If it begins installing Gutsy's packages, and you run into errors, don't click the OK button, that will return your computer to its previous state and you'll lose everything it has done so far; instead, press Ctrl+Alt+Esc and click the installer to close it. Doing this will allow you to keep the Gutsy repos. Open Konsole and type
sudo apt-get install -f
sudo dpkg --configure -a
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
This should upgrade you to Gutsy (kinda' dirty, so make sure you backup all your important information, but you should do that anyway :P)

The error i described above happened during
step 1 : Preparing the upgrade
I was searching for the error and some hits turned up on how similar issues could be resolved by changing the respository.
Changing the url from http://archive. to http://us.archive. that seems to have solved this particular problem. It completed step 1 and moving on.
I understood your comment on how to resume after errors once it starts installing gutsy upgrades .. will keep that in mind.
Step 2: Modifying the software Channels .. completed with a warning
It warned me that support for certain applications are not available anymore.
Does that mean i will have to say yes to removing those components ?
Thanks for the quick responses.

You can choose yes, it won't hurt anything. You'll be prompted for your input several times during the upgrade, it's safe just to choose the default answers.

Moving on ..
Step 3 Fetching the Upgrades .. in progress.
This is going to be a while from the looks of it.
Fetching file 4/ 1735 @ 31.1 kb/s ..

Can you ping google?
ping -c 1 www.google.com
Also, check to see if you can enable your connection through System Settings -> Network Settings -> Administrator Mode... -> eth0 -> Enable Interface. If not, and eth0 does show, click it, and choose Configure Interfaces. Check the Automatic option and set it to dhcp; also, make sure the Activate when computer starts option is checked, and reboot.

I cant ping google.
I cant ping my router either.
I did enable my connection through System Settings -> Network Settings -> Administrator Mode... -> eth0 -> Enable Interface. chose Configure Interfaces. Checked the Automatic option and set it to dhcp; also, made sure the Activate when computer starts option is checked, and rebooted the machine.
with no luck . ???

Here is the story. not much of an ending.
After a few days of relentless forum reading and typing
vim /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist <- to add ipv6
tail -f /var/log/syslog
over and over and over again ....
finally this is what worked and as the post pointed by the link below says only till i reboot.
the holy grail for now is
sudo ethtool -s eth0 speed 10 duplex full autoneg off
From the post http://kubuntuforums.net/forums/index.php?topic=3086810.0
A few added notes.
I am not using a crappy network cable
It worked fine on feisty ..
Have tried a number of cables.
But at least now i have network !!!!
Need some help, should i leave it be ?? ???
