I will often run the terminal commands and not get updates but, as soon as I run synaptic, they are all there.
But for some reason, possibly from when I was using Daily Build & Beta of 13.04 I'd got Saucy Proposed switched off.
roughly how much of the updates come from the Proposed Repo over the Main Repo at this stage of development?
Been using synaptic!
I'll try again.
As of 26 Minutes ago I can say that I've finally got the upgrade to 13.10 working with the 3.9 Kernel an to say that it's still a Release Candidate and coming from Saucy Proposed it feels pretty stable.
Took a closer look and I think I made a mess....gotta do some cleaning up....not sure how I did it but I am the only "responsible" person here.
That meta package is buggy, that's the reason you can't upgrade.
All the packages go into proposed until any problems have been solved, then they are moved to main. If you are subscribed to the saucy-changes mailing list, you'll see what's coming.
