I just did a fresh install of 10.10. I was running 10.04 but formatted that partition when installing from a USB key. Pre-install, I ran:
Post-install, I moved some of my etc files back in. I updated my sources.list. Then I ran
sudo dpkg --get-selections > package.selections
However, lsb_release is reporting 10.04. When I boot the system it doesn't show the typical boot screen but rather "Ubuntu 10.10" and output of what's loading up. On my laptop (upon which 10.10 installed fine), the splash screen shows the dots loading up with the new Ubuntu splash (10.10 style).
sudo dpkg --set-selections < package.selections
sudo apt-get dselect-upgrade
I go into Update Manager, and it thinks I need to upgrade to 10.10. Thing is, I'm already on 10.10. My kernel version is 18.104.22.168 and I'm running Gnome 2.32.00 according to the System Monitor.
I'm wondering if I'm getting 10.10 updates or 10.04 updates since my system incorrectly thinks I'm on 10.04.
