Bug description:
  When trying to reinstall an existing Ubuntu cosmic installation using
  latest 18.10 desktop images, the install shows an error dialog around
  the end of the installation with an "Error restoring installed
  applications". Looking at the syslog such a traceback can be seen:

  apt_pkg.Error: E:Could not get lock
  /target/var/cache/apt/archives/lock - open (11: Resource temporarily
  unavailable), E:Unable to lock directory
  /target/var/cache/apt/archives/

  After reproducing this on a live session, after chrooting into /target
  indeed any apt-get install operations result in the same lock-file
  error. The whole syslog of the reinstall attached to the bug.

  Test case:
   * Download latest cosmic image
   * Install cosmic on the whole disk (can be on a VM)
   * (optional) Boot into the system and leave a file in the home directory (to 
leave a trace, just in case)
   * Reboot and install cosmic using the first option in ubiquity: Reinstall 
Ubuntu
   * Finish configuration

  The install itself doesn't fail, but around the end of the
  installation process the error dialog appears. System is still
  bootable but left with old packages.

  * AD integration for GTK UI.

  * Do not try to keep installed software when reinstalling Ubuntu as the

[Touch-packages] [Bug 1798369] Re: Reinstall Ubuntu (with preserving existing data) shows error message due to "Could not get lock /target/var/cache/apt/archives/lock"

2020-09-15 Thread Brian Murray
This process which reinstalls your existing applications has been
removed from ubiquity as it was broken and misleading in that it
frequently would not reinstall many of the applications which were
installed on the system. So in the interest of providing a better user
experience, by not creating expectations that would not be met, we have
removed that part of the "Reinstall Ubuntu" option.

not actually have the packages listed in it which I'd previous installed

[Touch-packages] [Bug 1798369] Re: Reinstall Ubuntu (with preserving existing data) shows error message due to "Could not get lock /target/var/cache/apt/archives/lock"

2020-08-19 Thread Brian Murray
On Ubuntu 20.04 the error message I'm seeing when trying to manually run
the apt-clone command from the Ubuntu 20.04 Live CD is:

"Chrooting into /target/
dpkg: error: cannot stat pathname '/tmp/apt-dpkg-install-$TEMP' : No such file 
or directory"

Bug description:
  When trying to reinstall an existing Ubuntu cosmic installation using
  latest 18.10 desktop images, the install shows an error dialog around
  the end of the installation with an "Error restoring installed
  applications". Looking at the syslog such a traceback can be seen:

  apt_pkg.Error: E:Could not get lock
  /target/var/cache/apt/archives/lock - open (11: Resource temporarily
  unavailable), E:Unable to lock directory
  /target/var/cache/apt/archives/

  After reproducing this on a live session, after chrooting into /target
  indeed any apt-get install operations result in the same lock-file
  error. The whole syslog of the reinstall attached to the bug.

  Test case:
   * Download latest cosmic image
   * Install cosmic on the whole disk (can be on a VM)
   * (optional) Boot into the system and leave a file in the home directory (to 
leave a trace, just in case)
   * Reboot and install cosmic using the first option in ubiquity: Reinstall 
Ubuntu
   * Finish configuration

  The install itself doesn't fail, but around the end of the
  installation process the error dialog appears. System is still
  bootable but left with old packages.

Actually I did not see an error message regarding the log file, nor can
I find one on disk, but the packages I had installed before the
reinstall are no longer installed.

   * (optional) Boot into the system and leave a file in the home directory (to 
leave a trace, just in case)
   * Reboot and install cosmic using the first option in ubiquity: Reinstall 
Ubuntu
   * Finish configuration

  The install itself doesn't fail, but around the end of the
  installation process the error dialog appears. System is still
  bootable but left with old packages.
