I did some pruning, removed a few old kernel images and some games that no-one 
plays and the upgrade succeeded. So far I haven't noticed any problems, except 
that the desktop is now different. I assume it's unity, which I also assume is a 
feature not a bug :-). This probably won't be a problem, the other users of this 
machine (wife and daughter) have not complained yet, but I was surprised by the 
change because in the previous release unity had not worked at all so I had set 
it to use the gnome desktop. I didn't expect the upgrade to override that setting.
