Bug Description

I have Ubuntu server installed as a virtual machine under VirtualBox. No addition applications, just the core server.
I upgraded to Ubuntu 10.4 using the normal "sudo do-release-upgrade -d".
After the install I'm asked to restart the ubuntu server.

After the restart, the bootup screen shows up with "[c]ould not write bytes: broken pipes" in the center of the screen. Once the progress bar reaches to about 80% I'm left with a blank screen with the cursor at the top-left corner.

Screenshot attached.

Lucid is under active development. I have Lucid system working fine in my VM I believe there was a issue with the kernel in vm that got fixed. Can you try a new install of the VM to see if that works.

I've installed Lucid fresh from the iso under VirtualBox. There seems to be no issue for a fresh install.
But an upgrade does not succeed.
