    Can't update 13.10 to 14.04

    For a few days the Updater would show the message "no updates, but there's a new Ubuntu version", but that message is gone now.

    I tried running the command-line version, using the -d even, but all I get is "no newer version found".

    Tried following this: http://askubuntu.com/questions/45161...tware-channels but nothing changed as well.

    I made a 14.04 Live USB but there's no option to upgrade.

    What else can I do?

    Thank you.

    Do a terminal update to 13.10 first.

    sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

    post back any errors.

    Also post your sources.

    cat /etc/apt/sources.list

    I issued the first command and it looks like a regular installation of software, is that the actual upgrade? I didn't go through because I want to be at home for this, I just ran it via remote ssh to check the result.

    My sources are this (I got it from repogen.simplylinux.ch):

    The first command makes sure your saucy install is fully up to date. It does not upgrade to trusty.

    Right. Done that, installed all packages. No errors. Still it doesn't let me do the upgrade.

    From a terminal
    Code:
    sudo do-release-upgrade
    Does that start the upgrade?

    Also check your Software Sources under the Updates tab for Release Upgrades is set for "Any Release"

    Good Luck

    Thanks plucky for providing that screenshot. I had all four checkboxes marked, unchecking the two last ones made the upgrade option finally show up.

    You can safely enable the backports tick box. They are normally enabled by default on a clean install.
