    Can not upgrade to 12.04


    The problem started when I was trying to download the 12.04 beta 1 but didn't have sufficient time to complete the install. As I try to upgrade or re-download 12.04 I get the message - "Not all updates can be installed" with the choice to Partial Upgrade or close.

    Partial gives me - "An upgrade from 'precise' to 'oneiric' is not supported with this tool."

    Close gives me - "Software index is broken

    It is impossible to install or remove any software. Please use the package manager "Synaptic" or run "sudo apt-get install -f" in a terminal to fix this issue at first."

    The Synaptic suggestion doesn't work as well. The command gives me

    "E: dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'sudo dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem."

    Any suggestions?

    Send the download to the trash and re-download & burn the distro to a cd. That way you always have a fresh copy of your operating system.
