    14.04 Final Beta upgrade from 13.10

    I got the announcement of the 14.04 Final Beta today. But when I begin to upgrade the first thing I see is this:

    It says Alpha! In caps! I am reasonably sure this would not be available to me through Update Manager unless it is the Final Beta, but I do not want to hit the upgrade button without confirming that with those who know more.

    Thank You!!!

    You're reasonably right. You shouldn’t be seeing this until release day. Where are you seeing this? Did you open Software and Updates yourself or did this just pop up? Have you run any terminal commands such as do-release-upgrade?

    I know it is not the final release, but I thought that Final Beta, available through the update manager, would be fairly stable and relatively bug free, after all the release date is only 3 weeks away. I was only going to put it on one machine, out of curiosity. Everything is backed up and I would not blink an eye if I had to re-install, but if you advise against it, Bucky Ball, I must listen, for you have never steered me wrong in the past.
    Thanks.

    If you have a spare machine that doesn't have your life's data on it and a precious configuration, I'd chuck it on there, sure. I was thinking it was going to be for your main squeeze. That might not be a good idea.

    coffecat,
    This Beta release was anounced in an e-mail list (ubuntu-announce Digest, Vol 71, Issue 1‏) along with a link to upgrade instructions. I opened update manager myself, but the option to upgrade was already there.

    +1. That's how I'm running it. I have about four installs on separate partitions (from memory).

    * Just checked. Yes, four.
