Issue in installing Lucid

Asked by Vivek S Panicker

Hi, I have installed Lucid beta using update manager. Unfortunately during installation got off. Though Lucid is installed in my system, got some bugs. Boot menu list is not updated to lucid. Still have to select the 9,10 boot option which will lead to Lucid after showing some error messages. While opening update manager, partial updgrade message is showing but still it is not working. I have tried using recovery function in boot menu. But nothing changed. Could you please advice how to install it fully. I am using MSI Wind notebook. I am using dual boot option. That is windows and Ubuntu. Please help on this. Thanks!

Hi ?

Are you able to boot into Ubuntu and go up to the top-taskbar? Try click on

System- Administration - Synaptic

and then click on

Edit - "Fix broken packages"

Hopefully that might help fix it?
Good luck and regards from
Tom :)

or in the boot splash screen choose the second option ie Recovery mode and then choose third option fix broken packages, ensure your internet is working because it is going to download and upgrade the system as well as fix broken packages.

Please let us know if this has worked because there are other, more complex, things that might need to be done. Hopefully the simple fix should be enough in most cases though. So please let us know how this is going

Hi friends, my problem got solved as i reinstalled Ubuntu from USB start up disk by formatting entire data. However, I could feel so many bugs in latest version. Sometimes, system got hang and I am not able to use even force quit. The only thing i can do is to remove the battery...and so many bugs.. hope this will be fixed in LTS release..

Hi :)

Sorry to hear you had a lot of trouble there. I wish you had been able to let us walk you through some alternatives to reformatting the hard-drive. Since your current install is new it would be a good plan to make a separate partition for /home
this will hopefully keep your data a lot safer in the future.

I think the best first step is to let us know the output of

sudo fdisk -l

where "-l" is a lower-case "-L"
Good luck and regards from
