    Upgrade to Ubuntu 12.04

    I cant seem to upgrade to 12.04. I have the checkbox checked to inform me of all ubgrades to Ubuntu and it isn't showing up in the upgrade manager. Is this some sort of bug?

    12.04 isn't released fully yet. It should be coming out in a week or so. You can download the final beta if you want to.https://wiki.ubuntu.com/PrecisePango...Overview/Beta2

    Still, I should be able to upgrade to 12.04 according to the Help Wiki. I've followed the directions and it's still not showing up. Am I missing something?

    Are you running 11.10 or 10.04?
    The upgrade option won't become visible on the update page until the version is released, I believe.

    Someone posted the wiki info early

    If you absolutely can't wait open the terminal and run:

    Code:
    update-manager -d -c
    NO sudo needed!

    But if things blow up don't complain

    I removed update-manager and replaced it with Synaptic Package Manager

    sudo apt-get install synaptic

    Your user info says 11.04 , in that case you would only be able to upgrade to 11.10. That option should have been offered in October.
