    Question do-release-upgrade (i368 system - Gnome) 12.04 -> 12.10

    Most likely, I might be posting this in the wrong section. If so please do excuse me as I barely ever ask for help, and I could not trace the exact same error I encountered. I am using Vaio which only has Ubuntu 12.04 (all pre-installed Microsoft is deleted).
    I found indeed that the settings were only to report LTS upgrades, which I changed to all upgrades. After this I found that I was late in updating to 12.10
    I did (after several failures of trying to get the upgrade) make sure that all 3rd party software was/is turned off.
    However still I get an error "Application do-release-upgrade has closed unexpectedly" when clicking on the tab "more information" it only shows 'ExecutionPath' and underneath /usr/bin/do-release-upgrade.
    Unfortunately after sending in this bug report, I have not been able to continue, as by clicking on continue all upgrade related parts shut down. I have thus not been able to retrace more error information, nor have I found a way to upgrade.
    I am curious as why the upgrade is so difficult, in comparison to what it used to be (been using since Heron Hardy, so a few years). Never had this kind of problem, and I am also nor a very technical person so I do not wish to change to another system as Ubuntu, unless it gets too complicated to solve this problem.

    Do it in terminal and see what kind of errors you get.

    Code:
    sudo do-release-upgrade

    It seems like /etc/apt/sources.list.d/eduke32 is a directory. There shouldn't be any directories under /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ Please post the output of
    Code:
    ls -l /etc/apt/sources.list.d/

    After deleting all that was there, using MC, I got;

    root@xxx-VPCEH3J1E:~# root@xxx-VPCEH3J1E:~# ls -l /etc/apt/sources.list.d/
    root@xxx-VPCEH3J1E:~#: command not found
    root@xxx-VPCEH3J1E:~# total 28
    The program 'total' is currently not installed. You can install it by typing:
    apt-get install radiance
