View Full Version : [ubuntu] Trying to upgrade - Error: "Could not find release notes"

April 27th, 2011, 07:20 AM
I'm trying to upgrade from 10.10 to 11.04 using Update Manager. When I click on the "Upgrade" button next to where it says "New distribution release '11.04' is available", I get an error message that says: "Could not find the release notes. The server may be overloaded." this is happening from last 2 weeks....

Same here. 10.11 to 11.04 on the way to 11.10
Tried to do in from alternate 11.04 cd as well. It starts then quits on the first stage (just disappears).

I reinstalled Ubuntu 10.10 earlier today, but it's not compatible with the psmouse-alps patch, so I'm planning to switch to Ubuntu 11.04 for that, and for a better chance of being able to import my Evolution backups.

Anyway, this page might help: http://releases.ubuntu.com/11.04/

Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be any way to use the live cd to upgrade short of using it to replace the installation.
