View Full Version : [ubuntu] 14LTS to 16LTS failed here

Using both the Update Manager and "do-release-upgrade" in Terminal, it fails and rolls back. Any thoughts on how I can get past this and upgrade?

Restoring original system state

From the Software Updater "Settings" button (lower left of window) or the Software & Updates itself, under the updates tab, turn off the unsupported xenial backports. Then under the other software tab, uncheck any third party items. Then rerun the software updater and it should first fix up the necessary repositories for the update, and do it. Or from a terminal, sudo apt-get update and then the sudo apt-get dist-upgrade.
