Bug Description

I was trying to do the "update" this morning for Ubuntu 12.04 Alpha2 and it failed informong me there wasn't a desktop (strange enough as I was using the GUI to run Update Manager), then when I attempted to report it the "plymouth" crash flagged up. I am not sure if it related to others reports but those flagged up all seem to relate to previous versions of Ubuntu.
