Hello,

I'm using "http://archive.trisquel.info brigantia" as my repositories and I'm not getting the offer to upgrade to 6.0 from the GUI or the command line. Any help would be appreciated.

$ sudo do-release-upgrade

Checking for a new trisquel release
No new release found

$ sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade && sudo do-release-upgrade -d

or

$ sudo update-manager -d

Use at your own risk.
For me it worked just fine.

Unfortunately, the upgrade broke my machine. I'll do some backups and try again from a clean install.

"Unfortunately, the upgrade broke my machine. I'll do some backups and try again from a clean install."

Yep, this is why upgrading is disabled. Please don't upgrade at this time. Your package manager will prompt you when it's safe. In the meantime, just sit back. :)

If you absolutely must use Trisquel 6 for some reason, do a clean install. It's safer.

My experience with doing upgrades over the net has never been
satisfactory; a clean, new install is the only way I do it.

You are unlucky: I have upgraded my Trisquel system since Trisquel 3.5 (what makes four upgrades) and only faced minor troubles (like elements disappearing from the panels).

Trisquel 6.0 LTS Upgrade now appears in my Update Manager, but after running through several installation steps, UM says that an upgrade is not available and returns the system to its original state.

My computer is running 5.5.

FYI.

Hi all,

Unfortunately, after:

$ sudo update-manager -d

I got this error:

Could not calculate the upgrade

An unresolvable problem occurred while calculating the upgrade.

Please report this bug against the 'update-manager' package and include the following error message:
'E:Error, pkgProblemResolver::Resolve generated breaks, this may be caused by held packages.'

Any suggestion?

Many thanks in advance.

Hello there. Have you jumped through the required special hoops for this upgrade? http://trisquel.info/en/forum/trisquel-40-55-reach-end-life-may-9-2013#comment-33111

The -d signifies using a development version. Since 6.0 is in full release the -d shouldn't be needed anymore. Please remember to first apply all available updates for your current Trisquel setup first and disable multiarch.

Thank you for the suggestions.
I applied all updates before trying to run the update-manager.
However, I didn't focus on multiarch.

Within my configuration, the directory /etc/dpkg/dpkg.cfg.d/ is empty. I would guess that multiarch is already disabled. Am I wrong?

Invoking

$ sudo update-manager

raises the same error I mentioned in the previous post:

Could not calculate the upgrade

My package manager shows the option to upgrade, but after downloading the tools, I always get an "authentication failure" message and nothing proceeds. I am running 64-bit 5.5 on an Asus Eee 1015.

The sources of both of you look fine.

Did you do

sudo rm -f /etc/dpkg/dpkg.cfg.d/multiarch

and

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade

prior to attempting upgrade?

Jayn

Same here. I still get authentification error with the update manager.

$ sudo do-release-upgradeComprobar si existe un nueva versión de Trisquel

this terminated because it needed 780Mb of free space. So I will try to release some space.

I had 9 Gb of free space. I really cannot release any more space.

Could this have to do with EXT4 being a limited size? And having the home on the other file format? I am not sure if that is my case or did I end up using ext4 for the whole drive. How do I go about checking that.

BTW

$sudo do-release-upgrade

goes a bit farther than update manager.

Tried again, seems like I have liberated some space. But this mainly had to do with uninstalling texworks and gcompris and other programs. Not so much the /home. Which makes me think that I have to continue to uninstall programs.

and sudo apt-get clean

Yes! some progress! I had to go to synaptic and uninstall libre office and loads of TeX documentation and software. I finally got downloading.

Remember in synaptic to say remove completely. Also do the apt clean command.

I will let you know how I get on. But it seems to be downloading nicely.

Ah! remind people willing to try again that I used

$sudo do-release-upgrade

to upgrade. I did not get the upgrade manager to authenticate.

Upgrade complete! I was using gnome shell and it stuck to gnomeshell. Even the background stayed. The start up animation is stunning.

Great job guys thank you!

Only thing left is that the search engine in gnomeshell went back to default and it removed my configuration.

For the record: the upgrade requires space in the root filesystem. If /home is on a separate partition, removing movies will not help. Some easy ways to free the root filesystem (potentially a lot):

  • Uninstall dependencies that became unecessary (check out the list before accepting!):
    $ sudo apt-get autoremove
  • Erase all .deb packages (the packages, not the installed software):
    $ sudo apt-get autoremove
  • Remove all Linux kernels (image and headers) but the latest version you are currently using

The second command is "clean", not "autoremove".

Thanks! would you say that the first two are done by 'janitor'?

last one means i would go to synaptic and search for linux headers and delete the ones with smallest version number?

janitor does more than that -- to me, it offers to remove any package which is not on the repos I use, like libdvdcss2 which I installed by running /usr/share/doc/libdvdread4/install-css.sh --; you should be safe using only "autoremove" and "clean".

To know which linux-* packages are installed you could type "apt-get remove linux" in a command line and hit TAB two times -- the terminal would show you which packages beginning with "linux" you can remove.

I tried sudo do-release-upgrade and it went through the process. At the end, it said upgrade complete but there was something that did not complete. I ran do-release-upgrade again and it still said something was not completed. Upon reboot, things looked the same. I ran the Update Manager and I got a dialog saying 'Partial Upgrade'. When I clicked it, it said that I could not upgrade from brigantia to toutatis with that tool. I am tempted to burn a CD and try to install over just my root partition and hopefully leave my /home one alone. Has been frustrating so far but I think it has to do with running 64-bit, which in my opinion is overrated.

I had no problem upgrading using Update Manager and then sudo do-release-upgrade. It took about one hour overall and I had to intervene only 3 times to decide yes or no to something. It all went very smoothly from the time of downloading an upgrade tool to the updating of all the packages. So, it is possible to upgrade in that way without any problems. I'm using a Samsung netbook,

You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these.
The following packages have unmet dependencies:

I have tried to reinstall libc6 from Synaptic but it does not work.

(Re)move the /etc/dpkg/dpkg.cfg.d/multiarch file; remove every *:i386 package. Then try again.

Are you sure your Brigantia installation was up-to-date before doing the upgrade? AFAIK, if it was, it should remove that automatically.

I'd search for ":i386" in the Synaptic package manager and purge the results.

I have successfully upgraded my 32-bit HP Mini with 'sudo do-release-upgrade', so all that remains is my 64-bit netbook. Searching for :i386 in Synaptic only showed that perl was the only relevant thing installed, the other *386 packages were not installed like libc6. Last year, for my HP Mini, it came to backing up, and reinstalling over the whole drive. It may come to that, but I will wait for a while.

I found out that the problem is that the libc6-i386 is version 2.13, while the libc6-amd64 is 2.15 and this is preventing libc6 from being configured. 'sudo-do-release-upgrade' no longer works, but my system is clearly not 6.0. The latest libc6-i386 i can find to download from the Trisquel package site is 2.13, so I am not sure what I can do manually to fix this.
