    Default Unable to upgrade BT5 to BT5 R2

    hello guys,i have a problem when try to upgrade my BT5 to BT5 R2.

    i've used apt-get update and apt-get dist-upgrade command,then it shows like this:
    Code:
    Fetched 4,475kB in 47s (94.6kB/s)                                              
    Reading package lists... Done
    
    root@bt:~# apt-get dist-upgrade
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree      
    Reading state information... Done
    Calculating upgrade... Done
    0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
    and when i check the version:
    Code:
    root@bt:~# uname -a
    Linux bt 2.6.38 #1 SMP Thu Mar 17 20:52:18 EDT 2011 i686 GNU/Linux
    it still using Kernel 2.6 (BT5)

    i've reboot my computer,and then check again,and there is no changes.

    then i try to update my grub information:
    Code:
    root@bt:~# update-grub2
    Generating grub.cfg ...
    Found background image: suse2.png
    Found linux image: /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.38
    Found initrd image: /boot/initrd.img-2.6.38
    Found linux image: /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.32-41-generic
    Found initrd image: /boot/initrd.img-2.6.32-41-generic
    Found memtest86+ image: /boot/memtest86+.bin
    Found Windows 7 (loader) on /dev/sda1
    Found openSUSE 12.1 (i586) on /dev/sda5
    Found Ubuntu 11.10 (11.10) on /dev/sda6
    done
    root@bt:~#
    there is still using kernel 2.6.38

    i know there is another kernel in my BT (kernel 2.6.32-41 generic), i try to use that,but there is a problem with my wireless driver ( i used Broadcomm). So i used kernel 2.6.38 again.

    i want to upgrade my BT to BT5 R2 which used Kernel 3.xx


    sorry for my bad english.
    please help me.
    thanks.

    I too have experienced a similar issue. Towards the end of the upgrade I get:

    Failed to fetch http://all.repository.backtrack-linu....3-bt0_all.deb Size mismatch
    Failed to fetch http://all.repository.backtrack-linu....6-bt1_all.deb Size mismatch
    Failed to fetch http://all.repository.backtrack-linu....0-bt3_all.deb Size mismatch
    Failed to fetch http://all.repository.backtrack-linu....0-bt1_all.deb Size mismatch
    E: Unable to fetch some archives, maybe run apt-get update or try with --fix-missing?

    Following the link I receive notification of a trojan virus detected. Either it's a false warning or perhaps as it indicates a size mismatch an actual virus that is preventing the complete set of upgrade files to be pushed. I hope someone can correct/fix the issue as I would also like to upgrade to the later kernel/applications.

    If you followed the upgrade instructions (I believe they're posted on the wiki), then the upgrade should have worked properly. Have you edited your /etc/apt/sources.list file? If it's feasible, you can always backup what you need, and install BT5r2 fresh.
    If I could figure out how to scuba dive & hack at the same time, there would be nothing I couldn't do...

    yeah,i add some repository for wine and gimp. and i've followed the instructions. but that time its ending a failure.

    so i decide to make a fresh install of BT 5R2 and it works normally. its my method. but if there is another method maybe you can post here so others people can use the better method.
