  6. Re: Upgrade to 21.04 from 20.10 results in no action

    The command I used to upgrade 20.10 to 21.04 was:

    sudo do-release-upgrade -d

    Try that.

    Note: unless I used the -d (development) option, no new version was found. That was on May 1.

    Focal Upgrade Poll

    The Focal upgrade poll is closed. Should it be? Now is the window where upgrades to 18.04 release flavors with 3 years of support will close. Focal is their upgrade option.

    These upgrades were done 24 Apr 2021
    Now is the window when the 3-year full support period ends for some flavors, so time is of the essence.

    Re: Software updater not reliable

    Software Updater (a.k.a. "Update Manager") uses "Phased Updates" and has for quite a while. So it is not in agreement with apt regarding what is available for update at that moment.

    If you initially click on "Additional Printer Settings" instead of "Add" you can get the previous printer dialog. Maybe it will work better for you.
