Upgranding Ubuntu 11.04 to 11.10 on guest failing

Using a clone of a fully-functioning VM running Ubuntu 11.04 as the guest I tried to upgrade to Ubuntu 11.10 by accepting the option to upgrade offered by Ubuntu following the login. The upgrade process appeared to work up to a point in the process where it hung and the display for the guest showed a very rapidly flashing series of dialog boxes, from which it was possible to see that it appeared to be stuck reinstalling grub. The only way out was to shut down the guest. After restarting, the initial Ubuntu Logo showed but the VM would not boot. I tried this three times, with the same result each time. I also did the upgrade on a separate machine not running virtualbox and it completed without any problems. I also installed Ubuntu 11.10 from scratch on a new VM without any problems.
