View Full Version : Ubuntu Netbook Editio 10.04 LTS: new release upgrade being pushed to Update Manager?

September 29th, 2011, 07:00 PM
Hi all, I'm running UNE 10.04 LTS on my netbook, and today Update Manager is trying to run a very unwanted upgrade. It's trying to uninstall the 'ubuntu-netbook' package, and replace it with 'ubuntu-desktop'. It also wants to install Compiz, which doesn't make sense on a 3D-less netbook, among other things.

I have my Update Manager set to show new distribution releases for 'Long Term support releases only', and as far as I know 10.04 is still latest LTS. So why is Ubuntu trying to apparently bork my perfectly working netbook installation with an upgrade to a desktop version or later release or whatever this is?

Screenshots for clarification:
