Bug Description

I was about to upgrade Ubuntu (Over 400 upgrades). Meanwhile I was upgrading I was playing around with GIMP, and when I was finished playing with GIMP I didn't think about that Ubuntu was upgrading, so I shut down my laptop. I realized when it was too late that Ubuntu was upgrading. I hoped that it would continue upgrading before shutting down (Like Windows), but it didn't.
Then I started the Update Manager to continue the upgrade. I made a partial upgrade and then everything screwed up. It didn't want to upgrade. I actaully don't know what screw up. I tried to upgrade 3 times, without succes.

Never mind, I found the problem in the attached DpkgTerminalLog.gz, i.e. `service epoptes start` fails if epoptes is already running.

To work around the problem, please run:
sudo service epoptes stop
sudo apt-get install -f

It'll be fixed in the next epoptes version.
