I have a problem with my XSERVER and the login screen does not load. I tried everything in all forums still no help. I usually get a message E: could not open file /var/lib/dpkg/status - open (2 no such file or directory). Xserver repair also failed.

Can some one suggest how to upgrade to 10.04 from the recovery console. I have the install CD and the alternate CD.

When i put alternate cd and reboot i do not get option to upgrade
Also tried Alt+f2 and gksu "sh cdrom/cdromupgrade" i get a message like invalid command gksu or gksu not found.

please help me to upgrade.
