    8.10 upgrade option not appearing

    Where is it? I already had Normal Releases as the option in Software Sources / Upgrades, bu it's not appearing as an option in update-manager?

    Any ideas? Thanks.

    Open System > Administration > Software Sources. Be sure to check all the Ubuntu and Third Party sites. On the Update tab, make sure at the bottom the upgrade choice is not 'never'. Or, more simply, open a terminal and type:
    Code:
    sudo aptitude safe-upgrade

    Code:
    sudo aptitude install distro-upgrade
    Do not do that. That is not supported.

    Go into System > Administration > Software Sources > Updates and change the setting from Long Term Support Releases Only to Normal Releases. Read Intrepid Upgrade for more details.

    As said, I've chosen Normal Releases (I have successfully done this on anothoer machine). I've also read that wiki page and checked all the Ubuntu and third party (why?!) options but it's still not showing.
