Ubuntu 14.04 upgrade fails on 11-yr-old computer

Posted 09-06-2014 at 11:09 AM by flshope

I have an 11-year old computer running Ubuntu 12.04. The Software Manager has had the 14.04 upgrade available for about a month now, and I decided to give it a try.

If you happen to read my LQ blog, there are entries referring to Pogo2003, as I call my old machine.

MySQL with Pyplate on a Banana Pi cluster
