[10.10] Update Manager Does Not Show 11.04 distro upgrade


Ok, so my update manager keeps saying I have updated everything, but it won't show the new 11.04 release. I did everything the documentation says, including change the release upgrade file so its pointed to normal distro upgrades.

Can somebody help?

Did you start the update manager with the -d option? Do alt & f2 to bring up your run dialog box then type:
Code:
update-manager -d

No. "update-manager-d" would have caused a"unknown command" error.

I followed this advice, but the Update Manager still shows that there are no more updates. I ran this script twice.

What release are you running? That command is to upgrade from one release to the next, it's not what you use for doing your regular updates.

I am still new to this. Using "head -n1 /etc/issue", the command returned "Ubuntu 10.10 \n \l"
Is this the correct information you are asking for?

Not quite but the information I need is there. In future to find your current release via commandline do:
Code:
cat /etc/issue
or
Code:
lsb_release -a
or
Code:
cat /etc/lsb-release
Each one gives you varying degrees of information. Try them out and see.

Now are you trying to upgrade from 10.10 to another release? or do you just want to apply updates to your current 10.10 release?

I want to upgrade from 10.10 to 11.04 on my mini 9 netbook, but when I have run the Upgrade Manager, it always tells me that there are no upgrades. Is the mini 9 netbook capable of handling Ubuntu 11.04?

I have no idea. However are you sure you are using the method shown above? I'll go through the GUI, then the commandline way.

Start Synaptic Package Manager--> Click Reload--> Click Mark All Updates then Apply them (if any). Close Synaptic when done. Press Alt & F2 in the run box that appears type:
Code:
update-manager -d
now click run. At the top of the window that appears you should notification of an update to 11.04.

If the above doesn't work you can do the same thing via commandline.

Start a terminal session, then type:
Code:
sudo apt-get update (Similar to doing Reload)
then
Code:
sudo apt-get upgrade (Similar to clicking Apply)
then
Code:
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade (Similar to running update-manager -d)
