Recently I found out I wanted the latest and greatest in some amateur radio
software used on the desktop system thompson at home. So I upgraded ubuntu
again. This system has run Ubuntu versions 8.04, 10.04 and 12.04, so it does

The system crashed during do-release-upgrade
which left it in a
non-starting state as mountall
failed and the boot stopped.
Mounting filesystems by hand worked and after that I could restart the
upgrades. I soon found out that although it looked like it already ran
Ubuntu 14.04 almost all packages still had their 12.04 version numbers.
When the apt-get dist-upgrade
was running again I saw it unpack
