Dougal – it might not be only your net connection. My download was around 36k/s, much slower than the 200k/s it can do at it’s fastest. Their servers could still be bogged down with people upgrading.
Hopefully it’ll go better than Richard’s upgrade – I had a few extra repositories in there for things like cgwd so I was expecting trouble. Unlike Richard, I had disabled cgwd a few weeks back so I didn’t run into the problems he had. *phew*
