I am trying to upgrade Opengeo Suite from 2.0 to 4.0, specifically for the upgrade of PostGis 2.0 to 2.1, I followed the instructions outlined on this page: http://suite.opengeo.org/opengeo-docs/installation/ubuntu/upgrade.html But had no success.
I realized I hadn't fully installed opengeo-client or postgis 2.1, so I used apt-get install and received this:
The following packages have unmet dependencies: opengeo-client : Depends: postgis-2.1 (>= 2.1.0) but it is not installed postgresql-9.3-postgis-2.1 : Depends: postgis-2.1 but it is not installed E: Unmet dependencies. Try using -f.
So I used -f and received..
The following extra packages will be installed: postgis-2.1 The following NEW packages will be installed: postgis-2.1 0 upgraded, 1 newly installed, 0 to remove and 3 not upgraded. 28 not fully installed or removed.

I was recommended to go back and forth with apt-get upgrade and apt-get -f install to isolate the issue. But I am assuming that Postgis 1.5 is still in use, but I cannot find where to remove it. (If it is possible to do a complete wipe of the Opengeo suite then I can also do that if it would be simpler, all of my data is backed up)
I am not experienced in Linux. Most of my work is on the GIS/Web side.
My Ubuntu release is: Ubuntu 13.04 Raring
