    Re: Disco as next 19.04 release

    I always do the upgrade by manually changing the distro name in the file /etc/apt/sources.list and then by running the Synaptic Packaga Manager.
    You just need to know the new distro name. For example Cosmic Cuttlefish is named "cosmic" and Disco Dingo is named "disco".

    Or, simply put, use „devel“ and let the rolling distribution start. It works, also, with all the files for other ppa's in subfolder, at least it did for me for several releases for several years now...

    Interesting trick which looks like testing for Debian instead of buster.
    However, using it triggers a warning which may or may not raise issues: "Conflicting distribution"

    W: Conflicting distribution: http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu devel InRelease (expected devel but got disco)
    So I reverted back to disco.

    Re: Disco as next 19.04 release

    Did you try sudo update-manager -d.? I had no problems doing the upgrade this way. Also you can now download an iso from the ubuntu daily servers if you want a clean/VM install.

    The installer isn't working yet. See the other thread.

    Lubuntu 19.04 Disco ISO, on the other hand installs. It uses Calamares installer instead of Ubiquity.

    Those warnings are OK. Just informing You that there is a reroute to latest distro... No harm, just warning.

    Re: Disco as next 19.04 release

    I just upgraded to Disco using:

    Code:
    sudo sed -i 's/cosmic/disco/g' /etc/apt/sources.list
    and

    Code:
    sudo apt update && sudo apt dist-upgrade
    and so it begins.

    Code:
    cat /etc/lsb-release
    DISTRIB_ID=Ubuntu
    DISTRIB_RELEASE=19.04
    DISTRIB_CODENAME=disco
    DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION="Ubuntu Disco Dingo (development branch)
