    Question Release upgrade to LTS

    I know that the option "Long term support releases only" for
    the "Software Sources/Updates/Show new distribution releases" GUI
    allows an upgrade between Long Term Support releases (community docs).

    Moreover, in "
    /etc/update-manager/release-upgrades" can be read:

    Note that this option should not be used if the currently-running release
    is not itself an LTS release, since in that case the upgrader won't be able
    to determine if a newer release is available.

    From what I understand that if I select this option in 13.10 I won't be
    advertised about the incoming 14.04 LTS release. I cannot understand
    the reasoning behind this behavior or the limitation implied by the
    "won't be able" above.

    Besides, shouldn't that be advised also in the GUI?

    Thanks for your responses.

    You could upgrade now. Open a terminal and enter:
