Again, alot depends on what packages you have installed and _from what repos_ that determines a lot about your upgrade experience.  Even Ubuntu LTS blows up when using non-standard repos.

The last update that failed was a machine with standard packages and fedup.
Sometimes you´re lucky that an upgrade works, mott it doesn´t.

Continuing to spam the list with psuedo-flamebait is just silly.  We're here to help with problems not listen to disgruntled people complain all the time.
