View Full Version : [ubuntu] 12.04 Upgrade successful but Grub still shows 11.10

April 12th, 2013, 09:02 AM
I have just upgraded from 11.10 to 12,04, and all seemed to go well but my Grub menu still shows 11.10 for all Ubuntu boot options. Booting is successful, but the initial screen shows 11.10 until I get to the log-in screen when it shows 12.04LTS. Is this something I need to worry about, and will it be OK to upgrade to 12.10, or will I need to do a clean install (I really do not want to do this!).

It seems that your update process failed to properly update grub for unknown reasons, as everything else is checking out ok.
Just run:

sudo update-grub
And you'll probably get your issue fixed.

Done, but it still shows 11.04 in GRUB and the initial screen (the one with the four dots).

Well, you can try to workaround it through Grub Customizer (https://launchpad.net/grub-customizer).Grub Customizer is a graphical interface to configure the GRUB2/BURG settings and menu entries.

To install it, run the following commands in the Terminal:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:danielrichter2007/grub-customizer
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install grub-customizer
