If the recordings are stored in the same partition as the operating system then these recordings will be lost when the partition is overwritten with the new Mythbuntu version.In my case, I have my recordings stored in a separate RAID partition /dev/md0p1 mounted at /data.If that does not get the Ubuntu installer running, try disabling anything mentioning UEFI in the firmware settings.Or If you cannot find UEFI settings then enable CSM - this will disable the UEFI booting of the installer and then allow a legacy/BIOS install of Ubuntu.In the steps detailed below, the recordings are assumed to exist in a partition separate from the Mythbuntu Operating System.These recordings will not be touched and will be accessible when the migration is complete.
Andrew That sounds like there is a problem at the server end. What do you currently have in your /etc/apt/file and in your /etc/apt/d directory files?

This tutorial assumes your Mythbuntu system is set up similar to the following: Partition File system Mount point Description --------- ----------- ----------- ----------- /dev/sda1 ext4 / Mythbuntu 12.04 operating system /dev/sda2 linux-swap swap Linux swap space /dev/sda3 ext4 /data Myth TV recordings, videos, etc.
TIP: GNU/Linux Tips This tutorial assumes a moderate level of experience with GNU/Linux. To learn the device path used for a removable device: Plug in a USB drive, run the dmesg command, and scan the output for the path (for example, /dev/sdd).
