Strange, but maybe adobe's site was down? Mine upgraded, including
Maybe you missed the part where I said, "Manual download outside of the Update Manager succeeded *whilst* the afore mentioned program was looping?
2 The impertinent programmer struck again and modified my BIOS
without permission (as also happened during upgrade from 11.04 to
11.10). This cannot be justified as any part of an upgrade process.
That's even stranger. How could it have modified BIOS? And more
importantly, WHAT did it modify?
How it did it is simple enough, probably via assembler and a BIOS call, and what it did was change the boot order of my SATA disks. To be precise, it moved the disk with Ubuntu aboard (/dev/sdb) to the top of the pile. I normally boot via /dev/sdc which contains my work-a-day Kubuntu system and I get to Ubuntu (and Windows 7 on /dev/sda) when necessary via grub.
Before I raise bug reports I would like to canvas opinion and
establish if anyone else has bumped into these bugs.
Have you checked if there are similar reported bugs?
I've never seen any, but...
