Bug Description

Binary package hint: flashplugin-nonfree

During the upgrade I had to OK the fact that this would not upgrade. The eventual outcome was an unbootable system that I have had to put 8.04 back onto. I will now wait for 10.04 and download the iso. I am of the opinion that distribution upgrade is not the way to go, I tried once before to go from 6.06 to 8.04 and had similar failure (not flash).
