So I downloaded ubuntu 11.10 and put it in a usb flash drive. I was able to boot to the usb flash drive hoping I could upgrade that way. It gives me the following options to install it:
1) Install ubuntu 11.10 alongside ubuntu 11.10.
2) Upgrade ubuntu 11.04 to 11.10.
3) Erase ubuntu 11.04 and reinstall
4) Something else.
I am able to select all options except "Upgrade ubuntu 11.04 to 11.10". Why is that? My current installation is not being detected. Is there a way around this so my current 11.04 is detected?
I really need help with this one as I hate to choose option 1 or 3 above. Upgrading via the update manager is not option for me as i mentioned in this thread: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1862495
