[ubuntu-uk] problems upgrading Ubuntu

I still cannot run Update Manager or Software Center.

Every now and then a crash report is generated and an icon appears, with 
an option to report the crash, but I cannot see the contents of the 
crash. I expect it is in a file somewhere, does anyone know where?

I have also installed the MATE desktop environment to give me back 
something that looks like my old Gnome 2 desktop, so I am happy with 
that. But the bugs I have experienced mean that things are not quite as 
good as before. Also some things look a bit different, e.g. buttons and 
panels in Rhythmbox look a lot bigger and the whole things looks less 
good than before.

I also tried copying the _gi.so file from my Linux Mint installation to 
my Ubuntu 12.04 but that made no difference to the programs that will 
not run, still have the Python problem complaining about gi.
