Hi,

I installed Ubuntu 10.10 (Maverick Meerkat) the other week, and after install it naturally updated. Now, just out of curiosity, I happened to click 'About Ubuntu' in the 'System' menu and it says that I am actually running Ubuntu 11.04 (Natty Narwhal), but I 'Didn't' upgrade the OS.

I'm not complaining, it's just a bit strange. Does Ubuntu do this automatically ? And has anyone else had the same experience.

Very, Very Very, Very ..... Very, Very Strange.

Mark :)

Sometimes you have to pay close attention to updates. There is a setting which if on will check for upgrades to newest version, and will ask if you want to upgrade. Perhaps you were not paying attention and upgrade was selected.

It's only one screen shot but it does look like 11.04.

What are your choices in the login screen?

Ah, even more strange, I typed the above command in the Terminal, and got this:

Ubuntu 10.10 \n \l

weird, 'don't really know what's going on here lol.

You have 10.10 installed and running. What your seeing is an old bug (https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+bug/694558)
