Thanks for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. This is likely a duplicate of bug 429841. Could you please add the log files from '/var/log/dist-upgrade/' to this bug report as separate attachments? Thanks in advance.

Thank you Jean-Baptiste for taking a look at this.

You asked for log files from /var/log/dist-upgrade/ which I hope I can attach.

There are 6 files and one folder. The folder name appears to correspond to the time of the error incident. Some names are duplicated so I think I will just send the log files from the folder. Please let me know if you need the 6 other files?

Sorry, I am not sure how to upload more than one file at a time.

Just in case, I will send the files that were not in the folder.
