Hey guys, I have Ubuntu 8.04 running now and am dying to see the latest update. I know I have to update to 8.10 before going to 9. When I typed in 'update-manager -d' in the run program box, it came up the first time, but I had to cancel the update before starting due to lack of battery. Now when I type it in nothing comes up. HELP! Thanks

That's generally not a good thing, to cancel an upgrade :-P

Try opening /etc/apt/sources.lst and change everything that says "8.10" or "intrepid" to "8.04" or "hardy", respectively. Then save and open the update manager again.

Got to where you told me to go but not quite sure exactly what I'm doing. Still a novice to Linux

Can you paste your sources.lst file here?

No I dont think so, it is just a list with some unchecked boxes, do you think I should recheck them?

ok, umm, do this:


gedit /etc/apt/sources.lst

Paste the contents of the file that you see.

Well, you still didn't do what I said, but your screenshot looks like it's already upgraded your repositories. Try opening update manager through System->Administration->Update Manager. If it opens, click Reload. See if a ton of updates appear.

what Temposs means is that you should type that 'code' in 'command-line' aka 'terminal' if you using UBUNTU and 'konsole' if you running in KUBUNTU.

and Temposs you should understand Mikesguitar said he is a novice.

Can you confirm you have opened and reloaded Update Manager?
