    utopic development 14.10: kernel = 3.13?

    I just folded space to gnome ubuntu 14.10 (with update-manager -d), well yesterday, presumably with enough delay for the beta to trickle to my archives. I now see

    Code:
    # cat /etc/*release
    DISTRIB_ID=Ubuntu
    DISTRIB_RELEASE=14.10
    DISTRIB_CODENAME=utopic
    DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION="Ubuntu Utopic Unicorn (development branch)"
    NAME="Ubuntu"
    VERSION="14.10 (Utopic Unicorn)"
    ID=ubuntu
    ID_LIKE=debian
    PRETTY_NAME="Ubuntu Utopic Unicorn (development branch)"
    VERSION_ID="14.10"
    HOME_URL="http://www.ubuntu.com/"
    SUPPORT_URL="http://help.ubuntu.com/"
    BUG_REPORT_URL="http://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/"
    
    # cat /proc/version
    Linux version 3.13.0-35-generic (buildd@panlong) (gcc version 4.8.2 (Ubuntu 4.8.2-19ubuntu1) ) #62-Ubuntu SMP Fri Aug 15 01:58:42 UTC 2014


    I am surprised by two aspects: first, that it tells me I am running the development branch, but not that I am running the beta. second, that I am running kernel 3.13. I thought 14.10 was switched to kernel 3.16. (I am having some trouble with an AMD card driving two monitors, one of which is 4K, so I want to try the later kernels.)

    Let me confuse you even more. Ubuntu does not have alpha and beta version any more. The flavours do but not Ubuntu. Furthermore, whether it is alpha 1 or beta 2 or release candidate, they are all development branch and that is what the "release" file will read until the OS officially becomes 14.10.

    You can try

    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get upgrade
    and see what that gets you and then try

    Code:
    sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

    Funny, mine is currently installing 3.16.0-12. Have you rebooted since upgrading?

    then there must be something wrong with the updater. I am looking at my /boot/ directory, and it contains only vmlinuz-3.13.0-35-generic. so, it ain't a reboot problem.

    Code:
    dpkg -l | grep linux-image-
    rc  linux-image-3.13.0-32-generic               3.13.0-32.57                             amd64        Linux kernel image for version 3.13.0 on 64 bit x86 SMP
    rc  linux-image-3.13.0-34-generic               3.13.0-34.60                             amd64        Linux kernel image for version 3.13.0 on 64 bit x86 SMP
    ii  linux-image-3.13.0-35-generic               3.13.0-35.62                             amd64        Linux kernel image for version 3.13.0 on 64 bit x86 SMP
    but I am running 14.10 on the amd64 architecture. this was ascertained by the etc release as well as obviously newer versions of other utilities (e.g., fdisk is now colorized).

    is there a 14.10 manifest that would allow me to check what packages there should be in it, and a utility to compare the official manifest with what I currently have installed?

    definitely a broken updater. I have a long update log, but it omitted updating 736 out of 2115 files.

    so update-manager -d on gnome-ubuntu is flawed.

    fresh install needed.

    same problem with ubuntu and kubuntu.
    upgrade from 14.04 to 14.10 (sudo do-release-upgrade --devel).
    got kernel 3.13
    will there be any bugfix. i don't want to do an fresh install every six month...

    Re: utopic development 14.10: kernel = 3.13?

    @arthur: did you do the updates after you did your upgrade? Just wondering, because i recall when i upgraded from 13.10 to 14.04, initially, the 13.10 kernel was installed but the when i did the updates afterward, the current 14.04 kernel was installed...if you did not, then i would say it says like a bug, as you mentioned...
