    Question Could not determine the upgrade


    I'm trying to upgrade from 13.10 to 14.04 and got this after running sudo do-release-upgrade:

    Checking package manager
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    Building data structures... Done

    Calculating the changes

    Could not determine the upgrade

    An unresolvable problem occurred while calculating the upgrade.

    This can be caused by:
    * Upgrading to a pre-release version of Ubuntu
    * Running the current pre-release version of Ubuntu
    * Unofficial software packages not provided by Ubuntu

    If none of this applies, then please report this bug using the
    command 'ubuntu-bug ubuntu-release-upgrader-core' in a terminal.

    Restoring original system state

    The last 'Unofficial packages not provided by Ubuntu' may very well apply, but how do I determine this, so I can (hopefully) remove them?

    You are still on saucy 13.10.

    Has trusty been offered to you via a dialog box ? If not, got to software sources and make sure you have checked to be notified on new releases.

    | Using a ppa ? Please install ppa-purge from universe, you may need it should you want to revert packages back |

    I just removed (still have a backup) all of those files and tried "sudo do-release-upgrade" again, same result.
