    Server Update 12.04.4 --> 14.04

    Code:
    $ sudo do-release-upgrade 
    Checking for a new Ubuntu release
    No new release found
    
    $ more /etc/lsb-release 
    DISTRIB_ID=Ubuntu
    DISTRIB_RELEASE=12.04
    DISTRIB_CODENAME=precise
    DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION="Ubuntu 12.04.4 LTS"
    Ran this today on a 12.04 x64 server. Do I manually need to modify the /etc/apt/ stuff to get the 14.04 server updates?
    Or is there a policy of not advertising server updates until the .1 release?
    Or something else?

    Nono, do this:

    Code:
    sudo do-release-upgrade -d
    https://help.ubuntu.com/12.04/server...upgrading.html

    LTS to LTS will be enabled once 14.04.1 hits, but the above command should let you upgrade to 14.04 now.

    Left it for 30 minutes. Nothing more.

    I'm about to load up a new virtual machine server and wanted to start out with 14.04. It has 12.04 on it with a few VMs now that cannot be moved (hardware and networking reasons). If it doesn't get 14.04 soon, it will likely run 12.04 until 2017.

    I did review this: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/TrustyTahr/ReleaseNotes ... since it is a pure VM server today (just the bridging and NIC assignments are complicated) most of the things inside that link do not apply. I should mention that nominal patching works fine and we use apt-cacherng internally.

    Huh. I just did that yesterday and it ran fine. Maybe you have to change it so it doesn't hit the apt-cache server?

    Finally got back home and removed the apt-cacherng from the config, temporarily.

    Worked fine over ssh to my headless server (no VGA output, but I only have VGA on the KVM switch). So far, everything has been seamless in the upgrade - samba, nfs client, bridge configuration, KVM server - all working.

    Thanks Charles.
