Question Froze In Middle of Upgrade With Error Message.

Compaq Presario 543OUS series 5000
RAM 256Mb; Clock 1.8 Gb
Hard Drive 30 Gb
NVIDIA accelerated graphics driver
Ubuntu 8.04; Ff 3.0

Please see my thread from yesterday: I already have sun-java6-bin and sun-hava6-jre

I'm presently in the middle of upgrading to 8.10. Just as the install wizard got to "About 3 hours 8 minutes remaining," what pops up but -- you guessed it: that same old sun-java6-doc error. And now it's froze there. The wizard says that aborting it now may leave the system broken -- do I want to do that? Of, course "no." But what to do now?

Earlier, during this instillation, I saw where the terminal window had listed something to the effect of "preparing previously deselected . . .;" I thought that that hadn't been installed before the upgrade began (?).

As always, let me say that any help will be really appreciated.
