** Description changed:

  Binary package hint: xulrunner-1.9
  Relative novice ubuntu user. A brand new install of ubuntu 8.1 to a Dell Precision Workstation 530MT dual intel xeon 1.7, 1 GB RAM (as per factory, but with ATI radeon X800GTO graphics card upgrade). Graphics card using default driver supplied with Ubuntu (not proprietary driver). After an hour or so, notified of upgrades available via icon on top right of screen... so Iclicked on this. Informed to run partial upgrade. Said OK. Informed "subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 2. Could not install 'xlrunner-1.9' package. Continued. At 1 minute to go, notified of "crash" see attached image "Could not install the upgrades. The upgrade aborts now. Your system could be in an unusable state. A recovery will run now (dpkg --configure -a)." After reboot, renotified of crash in xulrunner-1.9 and clicked button to report and ended up at this website with the summary already filled in. Not sure how to provide more information. Not sure if it is a bug, or some other problem. 
  Reiterate, brand new install. I used CD with gparted to remove partitions, made one new partition ext3. Then rebooted and reinstalled from 8.1 CD (without running from CD first) ... followed all instructions. Used firefox, set up email. Didn't install any new packages. Then did partial upgrade. Now here.
