View Full Version : [ubuntu] Update Manager doesn't find update

April 20th, 2011, 10:12 PM

Normally Update Manager always finds the update to the next version of Ubuntu. It still hasn't given me any notion whatoever. I allready changed the settings from regular to LTS, but nothing changes. There are updates to the kernel, but I cannot download them, so I'm kinda stuck here. If anyone would be so kind to help me in this one? Please try to keep it simple, I'm not really a IT-genius, like you are.

Thanks at forehand,

What version are you running?

The current version of Ubuntu is still 10.10 and the current LTS is still 10.04. If you changed the update settings to notify only new LTS versions, you will not be prompted to upgrade your version of Ubuntu until 12.04 is released. Needless to say, you should still receive regular updates. Updates are quite different from version upgrades.

For the regular kernel updates: Try booting the machine and run

sudo apt-get clean
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

If you want to install 11.04, wait a couple of months.

Oke, thanks a lot, I think I'll just wait a few months.
