    Please make sure all you ppa and other repositories are uncheked from Software Sources.
    Then run

    sudo apt-get upgrade
    to make sure your system is fully up to date.
    Then your can process from here https://help.ubuntu.com/community/TrustyUpgrades

    This is the error from the messagebox from update-manager (unsurprisingly it's exactly the same as for the command line version):

    Could not determine the upgrade

    An unresolvable problem occurred while calculating the upgrade.

    This can be caused by:
    * Upgrading to a pre-release version of Ubuntu
    * Running the current pre-release version of Ubuntu
    * Unofficial software packages not provided by Ubuntu

    If none of this applies, then please report this bug using the command 'ubuntu-bug ubuntu-release-upgrader-core' in a terminal.

    Of course I only tried the command line version because it's easier to paste stuff into forums.
    So no difference.

    Re: Could not determine the upgrade

    Hi,

    As this didn't yield any result I tried to file a bug report and found there are things like this.

    This bug (https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...r/+bug/1301164) seems to be most helpful with:
    "There is a long list of non official packages installed on your system that are likely responsible of blocking the upgrade. You can start by reverting all video related packages to the version of an official Ubuntu repository (i.e all xorg-edgers related packages) then try the upgrade again."

    And historically:
    https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...r/+bug/1069133

    So as I sort of asked in the first post, how do I find out what packages are installed from non-official ubuntu sources, I can find the ppa's but how do I know what packages are installed from them. I guess I would need to remove those ppa's and remove all packages from them, then install official versions if possible (which probably isn't possible).

    Thanks

    See my above post
    You can look for the broken packages and we can try to work from there.

    Please make sure you have disabled all your ppa and third party repos, thanks.

    So I ran
    Code:
    $ sudo ppa-purge xorg-edgers
    Well actually I had to install ppa-purge first, then add the xorg-edgers ppa again and then purge it
    It doesn't stop where it used to.

    This seems to fix it, I'll let you know if it really worked .

    Thanks,
    Frans

    Ah, cool
    Found several threads with the same error and video drivers, but was not quite sure that could be your case.
