Upgrade to 22.04 from 20.04 ends with dbus installation asking for a reboot

Asked by Pekka Tiittanen

Upgrading on a virtual machine from 20.04 to 22.04. I have had this happen twice now, I got one upgrade done without this bug.

Basically the package installation stops at dbus package asking for a reboot as it was unable to upgrade as dbus-daemon was running. And rebooting at this stage obviously will cause a non-functioning system.

Added a screenshot of the upgrade window.
