    Cannot upgrade with Update Manager

    I have 13.10 installed on my computer and wanted to upgrade to 14.04LTS
    However Update Manager does not have an option to upgrade and tells me "The software on this computer is up to date"
    while "The notify me of a new Ubuntu version" is set to "For any new version".
    How can I proceed?

    Run this command in terminal
    sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
    Later you can open Software Updater and upgrade to 14.04.

    This. Plus, remove anything 3rd party you've before you run update. Example: Proprietary graphic drivers and PPA's in source list.

    Re: Cannot upgrade with Update Manager

    There were no drivers or PPAs to remove.
    But the behavior is very strange to me :
    After running the commands and launching Software Updater again it did not show the Upgrade button.

    So I entered from terminal "sudo update-manager -d".
    Now Software manager has a button to make the upgrade.

    When trying to upgrade the next screen "Release notes" is a blank screen. Should I continue??? Are these known install bugs ???

    Running that command itself is update procedure different from GUI update manager, you need not open update manager when you run those commands.

    When you run those commands in terminal, keep and eye on out put, it will list all the available updates and you'll be asked to install them or not in terminal itself. Don't shut down terminal.

    Re: Cannot upgrade with Update Manager

    I did what was proposed by rahul4577 :
    1° run in terminal : sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
    2° open Update Manager in order to upgrade
    The result was what I described under #4

    So I entered the command again.
    It comes back to the prompt without asking to do what so ever.
    Here you see the output.
    update command.txt

    How to continue?

    Ok, you should probably take backup of everything important and try that ''upgrade'' option at ''release notes''.

    If you can do without Update Manager, open a terminal and run
    Code:
    do-release-upgrade
