    Update Manager looking for mounted ISO.

    The upgrade to 10.10 wasn't showing up in the Update Manager, so I torrented the alternate ISO, mounted it, and ran cdromupgrade. It all ran smoothly, until I started my computer back up and ran the Update Manager. It said I needed to insert a disc. I ran "sudo apt-get update", and the output was this:

    Media change: please insert the disc labeled
    'Ubuntu 10.10 _Maverick Meerkat_ - Release i386 (20101007)'
    in the drive '/cdrom/' and press enter

    How do I remove the dependency on the ISO?

    What about mounting the cdromdrive as partition called "Ubuntu 10.10 _Maverick Meerkat_ - Release i386 (20101007)"? That should work.

    In Update Manager > Settings un-tick the ISO as a Source on the first tab.This used to be Software Sources in previous releases,but it isn't in the Administration Menu by Default in Maverick

    Good Luck
