Upgrade Testing

No joy on my attempt to upgrade from a fully-updated 12.04 to 14.04 
using 'update-manager -d -c'.

It offered Trusty to upgrade to, told me about the requirements (in 
terms of disk space), and estimated the time of download to be 6 minutes 
at my connection speed.

After downloading the packages it got stuck on installation, 
"configuring apt."  I let it go for hours just to see if it would unlock 
itself and get going, but it was just frozen solid.  Hard reboot 
failed.  Reinstalled and updated 12.04 with no trouble.

I wish I could brag about upgrading to Trusty!  I've never even 
attempted an upgrade before, always preferring a fresh install.  But 
hopefully something can be learned from my attempt at least.
