do-release-upgrade cannot be re-run if errors during upgrade

Bug #151299 reported by Jamie Strandboge on 2007-10-10
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
Software Updater
update-manager (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

I was following the instructions on ServerUpgrade, and during the download of packages, my internet connection went down. After it was back up, I tried to re-run 'do-release-upgrade -d' and got a 'No space left on device' error. After making room on the partition, I re-ran 'do-release-upgrade -d' and have the following error:

Checking for a new ubuntu release
Failed Upgrade tool signature
Failed Upgrade tool
Done downloading
extracting '/tmp/tmpIqSV8h/gutsy.tar.gz'
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/do-release-upgrade", line 45, in <module>
  File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/UpdateManager/Core/", line 160, in run
    if not self.extractDistUpgrader():
  File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/UpdateManager/Core/", line 98, in extractDistUpgrader
    tar ="/"+os.path.basename(self.uri),"r")
  File "/usr/lib/python2.5/", line 1139, in open
    return func(name, "r", fileobj)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.5/", line 1200, in gzopen
    fileobj = file(name, mode + "b")
IOError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/tmp/tmpIqSV8h/gutsy.tar.gz'

There is no clear way on how to recover from this state.
