Bug Description

Binary package hint: upgrade-system

Upgrade from Feisty to Gutsy on an HP Pentium 4 at 1.6gh with 1g ram

I looks very much like #155087 except that I have one line more in the log that provides an ERROR message...

Hello, it isn't a problem anymore. I don't recall this bug...but then again
it appears that it maybe back in 2007 when I first tried to upgrade from
Feisty to Gutsy. My system eventually crashed on the Linux side and I
continued then to use the dual boot Grub to load XP instead, until recently
when I did a fresh install of Heron and have now upgraded to Ibex.

I don't think it is an issue for me anymore as I installed Hardy from
scratch quite some time ago. That does not mean the bug is gone but it
does not bother me anymore. However, I do hesitate quite a bit to
upgrade to Ibex.

Thanks for following up,

Jacques.
