    Upgrade 8.04 to 10.10

    I am trying to get Ubuntu 8.10 upgraded to Ubuntu 10.10, I'm having all sorts of errors:

    Code:
    No valid mirror found 
    
    While scanning your repository information no mirror entry for the 
    upgrade was found. This can happen if you run a internal mirror or if 
    the mirror information is out of date. 
    
    Do you want to rewrite your 'sources.list' file anyway? If you choose 
    'Yes' here it will update all 'hardy' to 'lucid' entries. 
    If you select 'No' the upgrade will cancel. 
    
    Continue [yN]
    After pressing yes
    Code:
    A fatal error occurred

    EDIT:
    I'm following the Ubuntu instructions at this link:
    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/LucidUpgrades
    The errors above happened after
    do-release-upgrade
    command was issued

    That's a lot of versions to upgrade! It would be a lot quicker to clean install a newer version (and probably safer!)

    Re: Upgrade 8.04 to 10.10

    Unfortunately I am forced to upgrade this, I purchased a dedicated server from godaddy expecting the latest Ubuntu OS and instead I get Ubuntu 8.04 LTS - The support team said it's my server so they provide no support whatsoever.

    I allowed to do whatever I want with it but I'm on my own. I'm fine with that but I can't do anything until it's upgraded and I don't have access to the actual keyboard, only remotely. That means I can't format it since I would have no way to access it for installation.

    Is there any way I can trick Ubuntu into doing an auto-mount for a CD-ISO image and performing the installation via RDP or SSH. From what I've learned with Linux, everything possible.

    That messed it up so I'm reverting it back to original installation, I'm going to try a different approach -


    • Keep 8.04
    • Install the desktop version
    • Connect via RDP
    • Try to upgrade using a visual interface that does auto error checking
