[SOLVED] Urgently: Continue failed upgrade to LM19 maybe due to WiFi package data shortage

Post by InChrist » Sun Sep 08, 2019 3:51 pm

Hi

I have started to upgrade Linux Mint 18.3 to 19 but I guess my WiFi package (1 GB, then 2 or 3 more additionally booked GB) was consumed during the process. After midnight again 1.2 GB were/are available again.

Can I somehow go on with the process without having to download all files again but only the missing (one file 2587) and continue the upgrade? How exactly? I will be happy about clear and competent help.

Re: Urgently: Continue failed upgrade to LM19 maybe due to WiFi package data shortage

Post by InChrist » Sun Sep 08, 2019 10:25 pm

Good morning

When upgrading a running LM 18.3 with a lot of software like Libre Office and more to LM 19 online who much download GB is will take? How many GB of software packages for the additional software besides the operating software will be needed to be downloaded? So I can buy enough GB data use for the day of upgrading in advance ...

Clear and competent help is highly appreciated.

Greetings, Klaus

Do a clean installation of Mint 19.2 instead. Technically better than upgrading from one codebase (Ubuntu 16.04) to another (Ubuntu 18.04).

Will cost you 2 GB. :wink:
