This is not a bug. It is a question and someone can support it.

The way to do what you want, is to clear off 14.10. Make a new clean install of 14.04. Be sure to backup anything important.

You cannot dowgrade without clean installation from CD / USB.
You can restore your user data from your backups

Can you help with this problem?
