View Full Version : [ubuntu] upgrade 15.04

April 8th, 2018, 08:21 PM
I am attempting to upgrade 15.04 to any LTS possible.
The 15.04 repo throughs out 404 errors and "upgrade not available" so in order to update software I have reverted back to the 14.04 repo
When checking "ubuntu-support-status" I recieved

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/ubuntu-support-status", line 135, in <module>
pkg.name, support_tag)
File "/usr/bin/ubuntu-support-status", line 51, in get_maintenance_status
raise Exception("No date tag found")

sudo do-release-upgrade gives
An upgrade from 'vivid' to 'xenial' is not supported with this tool.

Support for 15.04 ended more than two years ago. Its repositories have been moved to old-releases.

While you could update through each release in old-releases this way (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/EOLUpgrades), it is extremely unlikely that success will result. You are more likely to encounter a significant emotional event.

You best option is to back up all of your important files and do a clean installation of a currently supported release (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Releases). Although 14.04, 14.04.1 and 14.04.5 are currently supported, support will end in April of 2019, so they may not be worth your while.
