I am getting this error on one of my servers, trying to use the do-release tool.
Anyone have any ideas??
Thanks

I am getting the same error also. I am upgrading from 6.06-2 server editon without x installed. Googling the error only comes up with this same problem when Gusty came out and people were trying to upgrade to Feisty.

It's almost certainly due to the servers getting a hammering. Try again tomorrow.

Why is the --devel-release flag needed?

sudo do-release-upgrade

I did a "do-release-upgrade" this morning. It stuttered for a minute or two but then completed normally. 8.04 is now installed.

Well I did one with the --devel-release and it upgraded it, but not sure if thats the new release or still the rc version.

Will...



do-release-upgrade


...work for my desktop PC? It worked great on my server, I'm just not sure if it's the right thing to use for my desktop.

Thanks.

anybody, I seriously need some help.
I'm getting this error. I'm pretty sure it's because my "/" is full, but I don't know how to free it up. or is it some other error? Help is really appreciated.

I'm getting this error too. When I checked the /tmp/foobar/ directory created by update-manager the hardy.tar.gz.gpg file the errormessage refers to was not there. Why doesn't update-manager download it?

just like @jonabyte, do-release-upgrade returned "No new release found". When I added the "-d" parameter, it ran... but returned "Could not calculate the changes" and aborted.

The additional info provided with the error message mentions "Unofficial software packages not provided by Ubuntu" as a possible cause. Not sure what that would be referring to.

Any thoughts? Thanks, --Gary

if you are upgrading from a recent release, this should work:



sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
