Hi all. I'm beginning the long process of upgrading my server from 9.04 to a current release, starting with 9.04 -> 9.10. I don't have graphics installed on my computer, nor do I want them.

I have tried following a few different wikis, starting with:


https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UpgradeNotes

and followed by


https://help.ubuntu.com/community/KarmicUpgrades

I changed my /etc/apt/sources.list file to include archived sources. When I run do-release, the error I receive is

Running 'sudo aptitude dist-upgrade' does nothing:

I downloaded an iso for 9.10 server, and tried following this wiki:


http://askubuntu.com/questions/47807/how-do-i-upgrade-from-9-04-to-10-04-2

The problem with these directions are that I can't run gksu.

Include latest updates from the Internet?

The upgrade system can use the internet to automatically download the
latest updates and install them during the upgrade. If you have a
network connection this is highly recommended.

The upgrade will take longer, but when it is complete, your system
will be fully up to date. You can choose not to do this, but you
should install the latest updates soon after upgrading.
If you answer 'no' here, the network is not used at all.

I forgot to mention I updated my /etc/apt/sources.list to point to legit repositories. The current contents of that file are:

I've decided to perform a clean install from a new disk, so I'd like to close this thread.

I'm not sure if I'm supposed to mark this as "solved", because reinstalling the OS doesn't count as a "solution". I was however, impressed that the new server had an option of keeping the old partition, which included saving my entire home directory. Props to the development team! This saves me the time of moving the files I backed up back into my home directory.
