Tony, can you get to the /var/logs/dist-upgrade and post the apt, main,
and terminal logs on pastebin?
and then post back with the links to the logs?
Logs are in
Note that I had a failed dist-upgrade prior to this with this bug (because I had
Xubuntu also installed). I can get you the logs for this if you need them, but
it won't be until Friday evening.
Most of it (as far as I can tell) looks fairly normal. Only bits that
look odd are:
Running postrm hook script /sbin/update-grub.
Your /etc/kernel-img.conf needs to be updated. Read grub's NEWS.Debian
file and follow its instructions.
Searching for GRUB installation directory ... found: /boot/grub
Searching for default file ... found: /boot/grub/default
Testing for an existing GRUB menu.lst file ... found: /boot/grub/menu.lst
Searching for splash image ...
Searching for splash image ... found:

Found kernel: /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.27-11-generic
Found kernel: /boot/memtest86+.bin
Replacing config file /var/run/grub/menu.lst with new version
Updating /boot/grub/menu.lst ...
Updating /boot/grub/menu.lst ... done
Can you try:
$ sudo update-initramfs -c -k all
$ sudo update-grub
and also post on pastebin:
$ cat /etc/fstab
$ cat /etc/boot/menu.lst
I know that you've done some/most of this before, but having it on
pastebin will be helpful
fstab and menu.lst are at http://ubuntu.pastebin.com/mVyacMHN
Did these from the live USB. Can't get the output from blkid as I
cannot boot at all now, not even with the Karmic kernel. Did the
update-initramfs cause this?
So it looks likes re-intstall time. So any advice on this would be
welcome. I will want to rescue my data in /home and probably keep it
in a separate partition. The rest can go in to a single root partition.
Plus swap, of course.
On my 200MB drive (/dev/sda), I currently have:
/dev/sda1 Windows XP NTFS 90GB
/dev/sda2 Extended partiton
/dev/sda5 swap 1GB
/dev/sda6 / 3GB
/dev/sda7 /tmp 5GB
/dev/sda8 /usr 10GB
/dev/sda9 /var 5GB
/dev/sda10 /home 40GB
/dev/sda3 Windows VFAT 5GB
/dev/sda4 Windows Recovery VFAT 6GB (Recovery data)
This last partiton doesn't ever get mounted.
