----------------------------

Could not install the upgrades

The upgrade has aborted. Your system could be in an unusable state. A recovery will run now (dpkg --configure -a).

after reboot, computer hung before logon, had messages about waiting for network.

After long time, eventually got to complete boot & logon using info at #24 https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/dbus/+bug/811441

This was a very nasty surprise - to be unable to use computer for 1 day+ while figuring out how to fix this (I hope - have not been game to reboot yet - as many people say this fix does not survive a reboot). Do keep up all the great work, I really like Ubuntu (just swithcing form M$), but this one is a nasty show stopper!!
