    Question Xubuntu upgrade 8.10 -> 9.04

    Hi all!

    I've got 64-bit (AMD64) xubuntu 8.10. I've tried to upgrade from 8.10 to 9.04 through Update Manager but I've had no option to upgrade to 9.04. Synaptic manager option "show Normal releases" was checked.

    This is a console version of the same commands:

    hm@m-art:~$ lsb_release -d
    Description: Ubuntu 8.10
    hm@m-art:~$ do-release-upgrade
    Checking for a new ubuntu release
    No new release found
    hm@m-art:~$ do-release-upgrade -d
    Checking for a new ubuntu release
    No new release found
    hm@m-art:~$ do-release-upgrade -p
    Checking for a new ubuntu release
    No new release found
    hm@m-art:~$ wtf?

    Thank you.

    Regards, SwordFish.

    Have you tried 'sudo apt-get update' to recharge your package lists?

    yes, of course:

    hm@m-art:~$ lsb_release -d
    Description: Ubuntu 8.10
    hm@m-art:~$ sudo apt-get update
    ....[cutted]....
    hm@m-art:~$ do-release-upgrade
    Checking for a new ubuntu release
    No new release found
    hm@m-art:~$ do-release-upgrade -d
    Checking for a new ubuntu release
    No new release found
    hm@m-art:~$ do-release-upgrade -p
    Checking for a new ubuntu release
    No new release found
    hm@m-art:~$ wtf?

    Upgrade Manager doesn't show new release too ;(

    You need a 'sudo' at the beginning of each line. You can't upgrade the system without super user privileges.

    ok, with sudo:

    hm@m-art:~$ sudo do-release-upgrade
    [sudo] password for hm:
    Checking for a new ubuntu release
    No new release found
    hm@m-art:~$ sudo do-release-upgrade -d
    Checking for a new ubuntu release
    No new release found
    hm@m-art:~$ sudo do-release-upgrade -p
    Checking for a new ubuntu release
    No new release found

    p.s.
    upgrade 8.04 -> 8.10 through Update Manager was fine.

    Hi all!

    A trouble was in update-manager package by infraresource.
    #dpkg -l | grep infra6
    ii update-manager 2:0.93.34infra6
    ii update-manager-core 2:0.93.34infra6

    If you've got this packages you can't see new release.
    The problem is actual for russian users only.
