    Re: upgrade

    Hardy isn't release for another couple of days, I suggest you wait just those few hours before trying again
    Every time you install Jaunty, a kitten........ wait sorry what year is this again?

    Hardy is out on April 24th.

    The blue banner at the top of the forum you see is saying that the RC (Release Candidate) is out. You won't have to wait long though...it'll more likely be Friday for you though (I see you are in the UK), as they seem to get released in North American time's

    No worries You can try the RC if you like, I'd suggest trying it on a Live CD for now though
