Re: Tips of how to updade 10.10 without accidentally upgrading to 11.04
I would think it would be impossible to update from 10.04 to 11.04 at this time. But I did notice after upgrading Lucid on a USB hd that System > About Ubuntu came up saying I was running 11.04, even though I was not. So maybe you were fooled by that.
I knew it was not really 11.04 because the login did not have both "Ubuntu Desktop" and "Ubuntu Classic Desktop", and cat /etc/*release said 10.10 and Maverick.
I am running Natty from an internal SSD, so I know what that looks like.
i5 650 3.2 GHz, 8 GB, nvidia GTX 750 Ti, 32" 1080p | i7-4700MQ, 8 GB, Intel HD 4600/nvidia GTX 765M, 15.6" 1080p | etc.
