Hi Dawn

When Its ask for second CD you need to umount cdrom/dvdrom, than only you can start installation from second cd/dvd

Please check may be you are using cdrom/dvdrom from another unix window (means your presten working directory is /cdrom or /dvdrom from another other session.)
It happened with me last week :-)

Hi Dawn:

A common mistake is to begin a software installation having 'cd'ed into the CD/DVD root directory. The mountpoint is then considered inuse. You might want to start again.

Hi Dawn

Before restart yhe Installation you can check this once

I think James is right you have started the upgrade with cd'ed to /cdrom or /dvdrom

you can stop the installation & after that umount the cdrom & aging you can start it with second CD using

Mount cdrom with second cd
# update-ux -second_depot

Ok, I am back. We were able to put the second cd in however, it errored out saying that the Second_depot argument is only allow if the source depot is a cd/rom and it is. Now what ?

Re: Updating OS and unable to unmount the dvd busy

I am not sure about the -second_depot option but did you give the source depot location on the command line ? As in

update-ux -s /SD_CDROM (..other options..)

for example ?

Re: Updating OS and unable to unmount the dvd busy

Ahhhhhh

Please try below

update-ux -s /cdrom -second_depot -y
or
update-ux second_depot -y

if it not worked than you need to start it from scratch.

you need to restore system from ignite backup,
than start upgrade, but don't do cd'ed to /cdrom this time
