    Upgraded by updating sources.list

    Per grahmmechnical, ran the following:

    Code:
    sudo sed -i 's/trusty/saucy/g' /etc/apt/sources.list
    Then ran:

    Code:
     sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
    Then I scrolled down to the bottom of the list and put # in front of the last two entries. Saved and exited.

    Then I ran:

    Code:
    sudo update-manager -d
    And was given the option to upgrade to Trusty.

    So that method is working now.

    Re: Upgraded by updating sources.list

    I need to make a correction. Actually Ventrical pointed this out. The code should be

    Code:
    sudo sed -i 's/saucy/trusty/g' /etc/apt/sources.list
    In effect the command says to change the old code name to the new code name. So, it would be precise to quantal; quantal to raring; raring to saucy and saucy to trusty.

    So, A.O_Stanley, Welcome to Ubuntu+1 testing. Have fun.

    I see that we are getting trusty ISO images at

    http://iso.qa.ubuntu.com/qatracker/m...nes/308/builds

    So, we could use one of those images to fresh install trusty and test the image at the same time. Or upgrade from the image which would also be a form of testing.

    Regards.
    It is a machine. It is more stupid than we are. It will not stop us from doing stupid things.

    Whole gymnastics of changing sources.list was completely unnecessary at this moment. Last command would have worked the same without that change...
    Editing of sources.list is neccessary only in very early stages of testing, better to say when testing even did not start at all... At those stages even „Debian way“ of upgrade is recommended...
    Caveat: Before (any) upgrade turn off all additional PPA's and (for some, even) contemplate of doing ppa-purge of those...
