Fix issues in upgrading Ubuntu 14.04 to 16.04

When I upgraded my Ubuntu 14.04 PC to 16.04 it restarted and terminal screen was loaded without any GUI. I fixed this by doing following steps.

  • First login with by entering login name(this is your username) and password
  • Run sudo apt-get update
  • If above step fails run the command which is given in the error. Usually this is something related to dpkg.
  • Run sudo apt-get upgrade -f
  • If confirmations occurs while upgrading accept all
After upgrading is done restart the computer.

If it still goes to terminal run sudo do-release-upgrade
