    Doesn’t work for me… If I do it this way it can’t find that program. And starting update manager from the menu doesn’t find the upgrade. 🙁

    Brian,

    Try again, there is a small bug and you need to run update-manager -d twice.

    It’s terrible for me after upgrading from 8.04.

    FireFox stops working, apache and subversion does not work. I could not log-in normal Gnome session, it accepts FailSafe.

    Sounds like the file owners/permissions got changed. You’ll need to log in using the emergency shell and fix this.
