    Re: how to change repos to Saucy

    I'm new with doing the upgrades...so, all i need do is run those 3 commands in the terminal?

    Also, i have 2 ppas...one is google chrome and the other is a web8 ppa for Oracle Java updates...that one does say raring on it...the chrome one does not...
    anything i need do with those?

    yes, all you need is to run the commands in terminal. You may have to revert the ppa to raring if they are not (yet) supported in saucy(most likely).

    Thank You jinjorge

    I don't think web8 has added saucy yet but could i let it change it to saucy and then when web8 adds it then updates would come through for it?
    Or should revert back to raring until i see that they have added saucy for the ppa?

    Might need to give it a couple of hours to propagate throughout all the mirrors. I know my mirror (mirror.aarnet.edu.au} runs about 6 hours behind.

    Re: how to change repos to Saucy

    A little warning. Changing to saucy repos, make software-properties-gtk to crash. To avoid that you must enter this line in the console: sudo gedit /usr/share/python-apt/templates/Ubuntu.info.
    And add this lines:

    Re: how to change repos to Saucy

    @serdotlinecho: did that work just using the three commands, or did you have to do all those changes that pnarciso mentioned above your post?
    This is getting confusing...thought it was supposed to be just the three commands

    I haven't done it yet...probably will do it on friday...but i wanted to get "straight" on what exactly to do (i am a newbie at upgrading)....
