Bug Description

lost power during upgrade to 16.. Probably nothing wrong with the software here except losing wireless support.. Which is why I went back to 14.04 the first time I upgraded months ago.. Hoped it was fixed.. I will be repairing myself as soon as I get time. Dealing with TS Hermine.. running repair in software center now.

I was running the upgrade expected it to finish but it was un-attended so paused .. several times.. So when the power went out, lost internet and battery died. Hoped it would install with out hesitation.. I would love if the questions were asked during the beginning of the install instead of pausing the whole thing. Thanks for y'alls hard work.
