    Post cli upgrade command from 7.1 to 8.04

    I am running 7.10 with problems. I can't do an upgrade from gnome desktop, no ? for root password. Can someone tell me the command sequence to perform this function from a command line?

    You first need to edit your /etc/apt/sources.list and change all instances of gutsy to hardy. After that run
    Code:
    sudo aptitude update
    sudo aptitude full-upgrade

    Yes,you can.System>admin>update manager but before you do that be sure that your system is up-to-date

    Code:
    sudo aptitude update && sudo aptitude safe-upgrade
    After that you should see in update manager message that new version is available for upgrade.

    Problem turned out to be error in /etc/sudoers file line 20 had a carriage return(CR). Removed the CR as in root ALL=(
    ALL) ALL
    to
    root ALL=(ALL) ALL
    And it worked!

    Cleaned up a lot of problems?
