    Successful Upgrade

    I just did a successful upgrade to my netbook from Saucy to Trusty using:

    Code:
    do-release-upgrade -d
    I had to try a couple of time, because the Canadian mirror doesn't seem to be completely up to date. Once I changed to the Main mirror, the upgrade went off without a hitch. I also changed the mirror from Canada to Main on my desktop system and found several updates that weren't showing previously.

    For those not using the Main mirror, it may be an idea to switch to it, to benefit from all the latest updates.

    I just finish doing one on the Canadian Server about 30 min ago. I switched to the Main Server after reading your post and it showed I was fully updated. The one I upgraded was Ubuntu-Gnome.

    Code:
    sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
    Code:
    sudo update-manager -d
    I will try this on my other install of Xubuntu to see if it upgrades from 13.10 to 14.04 tomorrow.

    Using:

    Code:
    sudo update-manager -d
    gave me the same message, but it was just saying that 13.10 was up-to-date.

    The do-release-upgrade command is what got me from 13.10 to 14.04, I'm running Ubuntu Gnome on my netbook. This is my experimental system.

    For UpdateManager to show/offer new version with switch „-d“ You have to change its settings so that new version is allowed to be offered...

    From what I can see, update-mangler doesn't give you a choice to upgrade to a development version.

    However, the iso installer does (if you run a daily build iso and you are running only 1 ubuntu)...that is how i moved from 13.04 final into 13.10 development) it would work the same for moving from 13.10 to 14.04 development as well...

    Ok just upgraded Xubuntu from 13.10 to 14.04 and took screen shots as I was updating with the commands shown. Then I switched the the Canada server to the Main server. Works great for me.

    Code:
    sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
    Code:
    sudo update-manager -d
    Then I switch to the Main serverr after I rebooted and ran this to see if any other updates were held back.

    Code:
    sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade
    Sorry the first 2 pictures are reversed.

    Re: Successful Upgrade

    It's interesting...looking at your screenshots i see a window (picture #4) with information that i saw when i used the iso installer upgrade method... although with mine it also mentioned about installing previous applications and data...

    So how did it turn out? everything carry over ok and is it running properly?

    I never had trouble with this method and everything carried over with no problems. It just works.
