I cannot get 9.04 upgrade to be visible in Update Manager. I thought that adding "Normal versions" in Software Sources would do the trick, but it does not help.

Is there a command line available or something? I tried tips from server upgrade and they were complaining about "ATI drivers not available" for 9.04. Does it really check that when using Update Manager".

However, it DOES boot with 9.04 32-bit CD (have not tried 64-bit) and seems to work OK. My system is 64-bit, AMD 5800+, ASUS M2A-VM system. My Ubuntu is 64-bit, 8.10.

"lsb_release -a" complains that no LSB version is available, I do not understand this.

I could also install from 64-bit CD, but I fail to understand the help text how it should really work - or perhaps there is something wrong with my Update Manager and that is why it looks confusing?

Any comments are appreciated.

To get the upgrade to show up, press Alt-F2 and type:


gksu update-manager -d

This will allow you to upgrade to the next version.
