[mythtv-users] Ubuntu/Mythbuntu update problem

I recently did a fresh install of Mythbuntu 12.04 64-bit. The first time I ran the system updates they failed part-way through and left the system in an inconsistent state. After a hard-disk surface scan and a memory test to rule out those underlying hardware issues, I've since wiped, re-installed and done the updates (including MythTV 0.25) and the system's working fine.
It could be that your failed power supply did some damage to your hardware so it'd be worth doing a memory test and hard-disk scan to check that out (see the "faulty RAM" and "Failing disk" sections at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/FaultyHardware ). Also, given "two completely different 64-bit systems", be sure you've verified the integrity of your downloaded install image (check the md5sum of the downloaded file and the CD you burnt - see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/HowToMD5SUM ) before doing a fresh install.
That should at least help to eliminate some of the possible background causes of some errors.
