Re: [PLUG] Problem w/upgrade from Ubuntu 11.04 -> 11.10

I am not sure if what I am going to say is correct. (Experts, please correct me if I am wrong)

You are still downloading the upgrade. The installation process hasn't started yet. So I think you may safely reboot your computer without affecting your present system.
I vaguely remember doing something like this a year back.

telling me how you should never run an upgrade but always do a clean
install- that doesn't help me now). It's been stuck @ "Downloading
Dropbox... 48%" for the past 1/2 hr. or so. Naturally, any attempt to
cancel the upgrade will completely hose my system. But letting it stay
at this stage forever isn't exactly an option either.

Any ideas? Googling didn't help.
