My answer to Teo's question regarding upgrades:
I have had no problem with updates of any of 10.04 packages. My history
is that I did a fresh install of 9.04, ran into a problem which I could
solve using grub-repair, then upgraded to 9.10 without any problem, and
during upgrade to 10.04 ran into
@Teo, I had submitted comment #169, and I am sorry not to be of help
when you were following those steps --I was in bed, being in a different
time zone! In any case, I am happy that you could decipher the steps
from my somewhat vague comment and succeeded in setting right grub.
You have nicely

my hard disk as the device (I have only one hard disk). However, below that it
listed OS options: ubuntu twice (perhaps including earlier version) and also
windows. Once could use arrow keys to select the OS
I managed to solve the problem after a lot of struggle. I would like to
summarize my efforts with my own idea as to how the problem was solved.

Firstly, I discovered that the system was running EFI (so reconfiguring
grub-pc did not work --
@Phillip, Windows was certainly loaded first (if I remember right,
Windows 8 came pre-loaded on this touch-screen Lenovo Ideacentre all-in-
one desktop). I did not use grub-cusomizer. However, what I do know is

I upgraded from 13.04 (via 13.10) to 14.04, and found this problem, and
I need help to straighten it.
I get the grub rescue prompt with the error symbol `grub-term-
highlight-color' not found.
I managed to get the boot options after loading the kernel from the
grub rescue prompt (though it did
@Phillip, sorry for my ignorance, grub-pc and grub-efi are new to me. I
discovered that I use efi boot only after I installed grub-pc to try and
follow suggestions from this forum. I remember having to use boot-repair
when I installed 13.04 first, and that probably resulted in the present
@Phillip, sorry, here's the output of ls /boot/efi/EFI/Microsoft/Boot:

How do I install xpdf-3.03-11ubuntu3 on Ubuntu 13.4? If I do
sudo apt-get install xpdf

Thanks for pursuing this issue.
The point is that once I succeeded (by some means) in upgrading, there
was no reason to go back and do the whole thing again. Nevertheless, it
might be useful to someone if the details are recorded somewhere.
Could you please give me a little time to check
As written earlier, I had a problem with upgrade from 7.04 to 7.10 using
update-manager because of not enough free space. After that I could not
get update-manager to give me the option to upgrade to 7.10.
I have the following further information:

I have the same problem.
I had the same problem with the previous version of update-manager, and
even after the very recent update of the update-manager to 1:0.59.26.

I also had this problem with gv version 3.6.2 installed with feisty.
After reading the above, I tried out the suggestion of making the
changes in the file /etc/X11/app-defaults/GV, and it works.
gv doesn't read ~/.gv at startup
