I would advise on backing everything important up and doing a clean install. If not there will be a lot of stuff left from 11.10.
I did an upgrade one time and everything went well for a while but, I ended up needing to do a clean install any way. JMO

I am with ubuntu 12.04 lts beta.I want to upgrade to the final release,but update manager says that my system is up to date.I think that i have to wait for 1-2 days.
Is it even possible to upgrade from beta to final or i will have to make a clean install?Is there an option to save apps and settings over the new install?:confused:

If you have been keeping up with updates, your system should be up to date. You could wait until 12.04.1 comes out and then do
a clean install.

As far as backing up, I just use my 1TB USB drive to copying what I want to keep then do a clean install.

jadtech, you should precede that withe sudo apt-get update first.


sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

There is no upgrade for me.Maybe i have to wait?Or maybe the problem is tham I am on a 12.04 beta?I don't know.I will wait for a few days and if there is no ugrade i will make a clean install.

This is much better than using Update Manager!

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgradeI cannot even get the Firefox update right now, servers too busy I believe. I'm just going to wait.

Wotcha peeps,

On 11.10
Just done the following:-

#sudo do-release-upgrade -d
No new release found?

What gives???

-d, --devel-release
Check if upgrading to the latest developmental release is possible


the up grade is available I got it about 1am this morning
try this in the terminal .

sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

dist-upgrade is not the same

Upgrade option now available, guess was just due to load on servers and/or lag.

Thanks all!

I am also getting a "No new release found" when I issue the "do-release-upgrade" command trying to upgrade from 10.04 LTS to 12.04 LTS.

I followed the release notes update instructions exactly:

https://wiki.ubuntu.com/PrecisePangolin/ReleaseNotes/UbuntuServer#From_10.04_to_12.04

Am I under the impression from reading this thread that it is just a matter of overloaded servers on Ubuntu's side?

pretty much that is what it is and the upgrade takes about an hour and half or most in down load and another near 2 hours install so each one upgrading is keeping things tide up a while ..

my recommendation has been to change server where you are getting up grade this seems to be working to a degree ..

thing is you should at the least get the upgrade to 11.04 or 10 avalable though I would think ..

Here is an interesting post to a thread I found regarding the same problem. I am a bit reluctant to try this however, until it is verified from other sources:

" (This is an incomplete answer and needs improvement and testing):
From talking to some developers in IRC it seems that 10.04 to 12.04 upgrades don't get turned on until the point release, 12.04.1.
You need to a do-release-upgrade -d or update-manager -d to upgrade from vanilla 10.04 to 12.04, this will "trick" the upgrader to give you 12.04. "

SOLVED ! (AT LEAST MY PROBLEM, NOT NECESSARILY THE ORIGINAL POSTER) I was reading through the "Ask Ubuntu" page and discovered that someone was able to get the upgrade to work following the same instructions that I used. Well I checked the page and they changed the instructions since this morning!!!! They changed "do-release-upgrade" to "do-release- upgrade -d". The old page was up on a different computer so I know for a fact that they changed the instructions. Note the addition of the -d. Now everything works.
