I keep getting this error message when trying to run the update manager. I am trying to upgrade to 18.04 from 17.10

E:The repository 'http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu yakkety-security Release' no longer has a Release file., W:Updating from such a repository can't be done securely, and is therefore disabled by default., W:See apt-secure(8) manpage for repository creation and user configuration details., E:The repository 'http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu yakkety-updates Release' no longer has a Release file., W:Updating from such a repository can't be done securely, and is therefore disabled by default., W:See apt-secure(8) manpage for repository creation and user configuration details., E:The repository 'http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu yakkety-backports Release' does not have a Release file.

I can not get the new distro to appear so I can upgrade. running 17.10 on a Levento AMD E1-6010 APU with AMD Radeon R2 Graphics 2 . How do I see this apt-secure(8) manpage?

Yakkety was 16.10? Why am I trying to get information for a release that was updated a year ago? I am running 17.10 now. Why is it not showing the repository for that release?

Yakkety (16.10) is not a long term release and therefore is only supported for 9 months. It's end of life was reached a while back, so you should upgrade / install the latest Ubuntu 18.04 LTS, which was released a few days ago and is supported for 5 years. See here for a list of Ubuntu releases (scroll for the End Of Life list): https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Releases

It seems that, for whatever reason, some 16.10 repositories were left in your sources.list.

Let's see the complete output of
sudo apt update
Also show the contents of /etc/apt/sources.list:
cat /etc/apt/sources.listMaybe you just have to comment out a few lines.

That is exactly what I am trying to do..... and I know 16.10 is no longer supported. I am running 17.10. That is the problem.

That is exactly what I am trying to do..... and I know 16.10 is no longer supported. I am running 17.10. That is the problem.
In a terminal - type the following command

sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list
Comment out by adding a '#' to the start of each line that refers to yakkety.
Save the file with Ctrl-O and Ctrl-X

Then:

sudo apt update
sudo apt upgrade

What do you now see?

I may end up doing a fresh install it may be a lot easier than messing with all this. Now beginning to remember why I went back to Windows last time.

If you are running Artful then your sources.list file should only have references to that release.
