    Question Failed to connect to https://changelogs.ubuntu.com/meta-release-lts

    Anyone else getting this message on Ubuntu Server 18.04 LTS when you login (part of motd message)?

    Code:
    Failed to connect to https://changelogs.ubuntu.com/meta-release-lts. Check your Internet connection or proxy settings
    It comes from this motd file:
    Code:
    /etc/update-motd.d/91-release-upgrade
    Which calls this file:
    Code:
    /usr/lib/ubuntu-release-upgrader/release-upgrade-motd
    Which downloads this file:
    Code:
    https://changelogs.ubuntu.com/meta-release-lts
    The contents of this meta-release-lts is as follows:

    The meta file lacks a "bionic" entry for 18.04 because there isn't a point release available yet. However, the program doesn't seem to handle the situation where a point release does not exist yet...thus no entry.

    Is this a bug that needs to be submitted or am I missing something here? I don't remember seeing this error message a week ago when I was creating documentation on how to install Ubuntu.

    EDIT: My environment info:

    • Version: Ubuntu Server 18.04 LTS (used "alternate" ISO image to install)
    • Kernel: 4.15.0-20-generic x86_64
    • 1 CPU, 1GB RAM, 2GB swap
    • Host: ESXi 6.0.0
    • Speedtest.net results: 695.96 Mbps down / 943.30 Mbps up

    Hmm....I just checked the two 18.04 servers I have and the error message does not display.

    Not sure what changed for it to start working correctly. Both files still have a timestamp of May 18, 2017.

    EDIT: I rebooted the server to see if the boot process had anything to do with it. Still no recurrence of the original message.

    Hi

    I had the same error in a VM where I installed Ubuntu 18.04 server.

    /usr/lib/ubuntu-release-upgrader/release-upgrade-motd
    actually calls
    /usr/lib/ubuntu-release-upgrader/check-new-release

    If you run "/usr/lib/ubuntu-release-upgrader/check-new-release", that's the script that fails with the error message.

    This bug was reported and just fixed. However, it looks like it is merged into the 18.10 branch. The latest 18.04 Bionic update-manager is v1:18.04.11.2
    https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source...ager/1:18.10.3

    I'm not sure if it's possible to install update-manager 1:18.10.3 without upgrading to 18.10 Cosmic. You could make the 1 line change that was suggested in the original bug report:
    https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...r/+bug/1771914

    Hi,

    Just installed the latest Ubuntu server 18.04.2 and ran into this. A little investigation showed me the message actually is recorded in the cache (/var/lib/ubuntu-release-upgrader/release-upgrade-available). All I did to make it go away was: sudo rm /var/lib/ubuntu-release-upgrader/release-upgrade-available

    Metoo, just yesterday. As far as I know, the server was always connected during the installation, I do not need any proxy, and wget can fetch the URL perfectly well (certificate valid).

    I also deleted the file to get rid of the message.

    Any reason to remove the message? (as mentioned above)

    I'm having the same problem:

    # do-release-upgrade
    Checking for a new Ubuntu release
    Failed to connect to https://changelogs.ubuntu.com/meta-release. Check your Internet connection or proxy settings
    No new release found.
    I've tried removing the file /var/lib/ubuntu-release-upgrader/release-upgrade-available - but this makes no difference.

    My DNS is fine.

    I'm wanting to install 19.04

    Could this be an SSL issue?

    I see similar discussion here
