Not exactly. LTS releases are an exception from the rule and this
upgrade from 8.04 LTS to 10.04.1 LTS would be a supported route [1].

@Jay: I would uninstall the package openoffice.org-writer2latex, try the
upgrade again and install that package again after the upgrade.

Removing the openoffice.org-writer2Latex package indeed solved the problem.

The upgrade worked fine. It was important that I solved the problem because my
next system is my firewall/network server and is HEADLESS. I did the upgrade on
my wife's system REMOTELY (even though it is just across the room from me),
which is the same way I will do the next one. It is located elsewhere.

Once again thanks a bunch!
