Tried installing the new releease probably 5/6 times. Sometimes it takes 12 hours some 480 time to download some didlly-squat 140kb file.
I really have given up on it
I'll try apt-get upgrade and see how far I get.
A direct upgrade from LinuxMCE-0710 is not possible. Follow the 0810 Alpha install instructions on the Wiki.
I do agree that the current installation process can be long and very frustrating but I have to say that we dont see the kinds of low speed connections you are seeing - and from your earlier post in this thread I assume that you are in the UK too. So the problem might be largely to do with your ISP... just a thought.
All the best
