    Updating from 8.04>8.10>9

    Hey guys, I have Ubuntu 8.04 running now and am dying to see the latest update. I know I have to update to 8.10 before going to 9. When I typed in 'update-manager -d' in the run program box, it came up the first time, but I had to cancel the update before starting due to lack of battery. Now when I type it in nothing comes up. HELP! Thanks

    That's generally not a good thing, to cancel an upgrade

    Try opening /etc/apt/sources.lst and change everything that says "8.10" or "intrepid" to "8.04" or "hardy", respectively. Then save and open the update manager again.

    Can you paste your sources.lst file here?

    No I dont think so, it is just a list with some unchecked boxes, do you think I should recheck them?

    ok, umm, do this:

    Code:
    gedit /etc/apt/sources.lst
    Paste the contents of the file that you see.

    Well, you still didn't do what I said, but your screenshot looks like it's already upgraded your repositories. Try opening update manager through System->Administration->Update Manager. If it opens, click Reload. See if a ton of updates appear.

    what Temposs means is that you should type that 'code' in 'command-line' aka 'terminal' if you using UBUNTU and 'konsole' if you running in KUBUNTU.

    and Temposs you should understand Mikesguitar said he is a novice.
