View Full Version : [ubuntu] Trying to upgrade - Error: "Could not find release notes"

August 26th, 2008, 07:19 PM

I'm trying to upgrade from Gutsy to Hardy using Update Manager. When I click on the "Upgrade" button next to where it says "New distribution release '8.04 LTS' is available", I get an error message that says: "Could not find the release notes. The server may be overloaded."

I doubt the server is overloaded 4 months after the release. I'm able to download and install regular Gutsy updates, no problem. I have used this upgrade method on two other machines, no problem.

Any thoughts on why Update Manager can't find the release notes? I am behind a firewall, but the proxy is set up correctly.

Alternately, is it possible to upgrade to Hardy using apt-get or some other tool?
