    Upgrade from 8.04 to 10.04 fails

    Hi all,

    I am trying to upgrade an server running LTS 8.04 to 10.04 but it fails. I do get the following error messages:

    ------------------------------------------------
    root@server1:~# do-release-upgrade
    Checking for a new ubuntu release
    Failed Upgrade tool signature
    Failed Upgrade tool
    Done downloading
    authenticate 'lucid.tar.gz' against 'lucid.tar.gz.gpg'
    exception from gpg: GnuPG exited non-zero, with code 131072
    Debug information:


    gpg: can't open `/tmp/tmpbhlhFU/lucid.tar.gz.gpg'
    gpg: verify signatures failed: file open error

    Authentication failed
    Authenticating the upgrade failed. There may be a problem with the network or with the server.
    -----------------------------------------------------

    I can do normal upgrades with:

    apt-get update
    apt-get dist-upgrade

    I did a lot of googling, but couldn't find any solution.
    Anyone any clues?
    Thanks!

    https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...re/+bug/156070 seems similar. Perhaps the comments and links there will help.

    Thanks for your reply TheFu!
    I also found that article and went trough the solutions mentioned there.
    Unfortunatly no one seems to be applicable...

    It is a machine. It is more stupid than we are. It will not stop us from doing stupid things.

    Thanks, but i already tried the instruction from that article.
    Still got the error message.
    It looks like the server can't download the lucid tar file.
    But it's not a network problem since i can download normal upgrades just fine.
