Hi,
I want to to upgrade from 18.04 to 18.10 but it doesn't work. Trying through the software updater, clicking on "Upgrade now..." nothing happens. Trying with the command line, following this guideline (http://https://www.linuxbabe.com/ubuntu/upgrade-ubuntu-18-04-to-ubuntu-18-10) I do the following:


sudo apt-get update and sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

and the result is this:


The following package was automatically installed and is no longer required:
gyp
Use 'sudo apt autoremove' to remove it.
The following packages have been kept back:
libboost-filesystem-dev
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 1 not upgraded.

The after installing the update-manager-core and editing /etc/update-manager/release-upgrades, setting the prompt to normal, when typing:

do-release-upgrade
I get this:

Checking for a new Ubuntu release
Please install all available updates for your release before upgrading.

Any help appreciated.

what happened when you ran sudo apt get update again after the last message ?

You have to get all packages up to date before you can start the release upgrade. Your package libboost-filesystem-dev is not up to date. For some reason, it was kept back. So the question is why this package can't be upgraded.

What do you get from
apt-cache policy libboost-filesystem-dev
sudo apt-get upgrade libboost-filesystem-dev

That did it, thanks!

Don't forget that the non-LTS releases have quite a short support period, so you'll be on the upgrade treadmill till 2020.
