encountered several errors downloading Ubuntu 9.04


After downloading 2 packets, the manager informed me it was ready to download 9.04. After it had downloaded and was installing it logged several errors and aborted the install. what do I do now? this happened while in Kubuntu

That is not normal... if I were you I would download the iso again... use a different mirror.... burn the iso again... (make sure you burn it at 4x to make sure it doesn't make no errors during burning)
Then try again....

Thats the best advice I can give you.

goodluck.

Thanks but.....

Thanks but I wasn't using a cd. I was already running 8.04 (Heron) under the Kubuntu desktop when the update manager (I think) said it was ready to install 9.04. Does this change anything?

Were you using your package manager to do your upgrade (having changed the repos in your sources.list file) or were you downloading an iso image of 9.04?

Auhhhhhh........

Well, I definitely was not using an ISO image on a disk, but I don't remember ever changing any repos in my sources.list file. But it was the package manager doing the downloading and installing. Is this something I need to do (change repos)?

If you're changing from 8.04 to 9.04 then I guess you need to change your repos. The original ones point to 8.04 (I guess) and you now want to get your packages for the 9.04 version. I don't know how Buntu does these things but I guess you or it has to change something.
