Hi:

In order to upgrade Ubuntu to a newer release you have to run in terminal
Code:
sudo do-release-upgrade
Read this link as Zorin OS is built on Ubuntu:-

According to the site below, Zorin 11 is based on Lubuntu 15.10 which uses the Ubuntu repositories. Support for 15.10 ends in July. Support for Zorin 10 apparently ended in January.

According to the site below you need to basically re-install Zorin. As I recall, when I tested Zorin it used the Ubuntu repositories so I'm not sure you could upgrade.

Zorin was listed on Distrowatch as a Ubuntu based distro:-

Sorry for the mistake:-

When you launch it from the terminal what output do you get?

What ever happened to the dd effect?

1. Plug in USB Stick
2. sudo blkid
3. get the address to USB Stick
then
Code:
sudo dd if=NameOfYour.iso  of=/dev/sdx && sync

tomiki,

it looks like zorrin 10 was missed out/not LTS,

http://zorinos.com/download.html

Copy your data and do a fresh install, perhaps with rsync, or just copy and paste if there is not too much stuff but you will need an external HDD/pendrive for that.

Fred.
