I had non Ubuntu repositories but these were commented out by the gui upgrader 
before it froze downloading files.

after running apt-get dist-upgrade and rebooting X wouldn't start because it 
couldn't find the nividia driver.  I commented out the appropriate section and 
was able to open KDE.

I eventually ran sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg to get a new 
xorg.conf which it seems happy with.  I eventually installed and am using the 
nividia graphics driver ver 180

I had several packages that didn't upgrade.  These included.


Which I removed

I believe some version of libkipi was  un-upgradeable 
and three packages were shown as blocked in Adept.  These were
gwenview, kdegraphics and one other which unfortunately I can't remember :-(

Eventually Adept allowed me the packages to upgrade the packages separately, 
and the libkipi problem just went away.

Hope that helps
