How are you doing the upgrade?
This is suggested on their site
Quote:
To upgrade from Ubuntu 11.10 or Ubuntu 10.04 LTS on a desktop system, press Alt+F2 and type in "update-manager -d" (without the quotes) into the command box. Update Manager should open up and tell you: New distribution release '12.04' is available. Click Upgrade and follow the on-screen instructions.
Perhaps you need to be hardwired to a connection instead of doing it over wireless

Good luck to you!

Bandwidth might be an issue. Are you downloading something else while upgrading? a larch file or someone else in your network perhaps streaming?

Good luck!

Do it in the graphical tool. Disable your software sources. The graphical tool will do everything for you.
Is this Ubuntu Server?

Press Alt f2 then type update-manager -d

Good think you got it to work, too bad none of my suggestions worked for you!

Good luck to you hope you enjoy Ubuntu 12.04!
