View Full Version : [ubuntu] Prompting to install new release after a successful upgrade

April 26th, 2013, 12:20 AM
I just updated to Ubuntu 13.04 on a server install by using do-release-upgrade. It seemed to go fine, but when I log in it still prompts me:
Welcome to Ubuntu 13.04 (GNU/Linux 3.8.0-19-generic x86_64)
New release '13.04' available.
Run 'do-release-upgrade' to upgrade to it.

When I do a lsbrelease -r it returns:
Release: 13.04

Does anyone know why it is still prompting me?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Same problem here.
Can't figure out how to get rid of it.

Same problem here...
For now I've just removed /var/lib/ubuntu-release-upgrader/release-upgrade-available and the message goes away

So, I dived a bit into the ubuntu ssh motd code and came up with the following solution:

sudo rm /var/lib/ubuntu-release-upgrader/release-upgrade-available
sudo /usr/lib/ubuntu-release-upgrader/release-upgrade-motd

The question why this happens stands, though. The problem didn't occur on my notebook upon update, which makes the entire affair all the more baffling.

Same problem here. Not a very satisfactory workaround, but it's better than that annoying message after upgrade.

Thanks for the tip =)

not sure why either but deleting the contents of /var/lib/ubuntu-release-upgrader/release-upgrade-available did the trick for me.
