    Unhappy Problems updating ubuntu

    Hey everyone, I am having some problems updating Ubuntu 11.10. My update manager is showing that my "package information was last updated 42 days ago". But when I try to update it, by first hitting check for updates, it wont show any. I have tried updating through the command line sudo apt-get update. However it still does not show the latest updates. Can you guys please help me out? thanks

    Can you post output of:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade
    please?

    I think the update manager (X days since packages were last updated) thing's a bug, it's on my (fully updated) system too.

    yea, but I wanted to upgrade to 12.04 (and I have the option for the new distributions enabled in the settings)....so shouldn't it give me that option? Anyways here is the output:

    Okay, if update manager's not working, we can try manually upgrading:

    Code:
    sudo do-release-upgrade
