    Question No Ubuntu 12.04.1 update?

    Hello been using ubuntu for a while. I've done a fresh install on my 80GB IDE HD which runs smoothly and comfortable on using it as my secondary OS. But I'm no expert on tinkering its terminal and minimal knowledge on its cli commands. So I have this problem, why is that I don't receive the Ubuntu 12.04.1 LTS update? even-though I have chosen the "Long term support" notification on update software settings with security and recommended updates are checked. Need help on this matter guys.

    This.

    Also, 12.04 and 12.04.1 are not different from each other; the latter is simply the former applied all the updates up to the date. The System Monitor will not show 12.04.1, it simply shows 12.04 (like on my setup)

    I have an alias set up for the command
    Code:
    lsb_release -dc && echo "Desktop:    $DESKTOP_SESSION" && uname -a
    so I type "version" in terminal and get
    Code:
    $ version
    Description:    Ubuntu 10.04.4 LTS
    Codename:    lucid
    Desktop:    gnome
    Linux Lucid 2.6.35-32-generic #68~lucid1-Ubuntu SMP Wed Mar 28 17:09:33 UTC 2012 i686 GNU/Linux
    which gives much more information to me about everything.

    System monitor never shows the point versions of the ubuntu OS, just the base, eg, in my case, 10.04 (Lucid), but as you can see I am running 10.04.4.

    As said above, 12.04.1 is just a release designed for fresh installs and contains all the updates released for 12.04 up to the date of the release of 12.04.1 . It's just an updated version of 12.04. You "get" it by simply updating regularly.

    Sorry for not getting the point. Because I'm very new to Linux Environment and using its features confuses me a lot. Nevertheless I want to thank you all guys for assisting me.

    Thanks for this! - Very useful for me - I was wondering about the point 1 update and this has confirmed that my 'up to date' system is 12.04.1!

    Thanks again!
