On about the sixth attempt, the upgrader application passed the
verification step.

Several hours passed while it downloaded the upgrade files.

And then the application disappeared from the screen.

So I did it again; this time at least it was smart enough not to download
the files again... but the application disappeared again.

I tried one more time... same thing.

I am sorely tempted to say something I would regret, so I won't.

At this point I think I have a system that has downloaded all the necessary
upgrade files, but won't actually do anything with them. I looked in
/var/log/messages but there's no indication there of anything wrong.

What do I do now? Other than perform a full installation from scratch,
which really defeats the point of Kubuntu having a mechanism for upgrading
the OS.
