    Easy upgrade path from Disco to Eoan

    I guess Ubuntu 19.10 eoan hasn't quite made it to the upgrade servers since all my attempts to use variations of upgrade-manager failed. However by just using "sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list and changing all instances of "disoc " tp "eoan" (without quotes. Rebooting and running "sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get -y dist-upgrade" did the job quite nicely. Looks like a lot of development on the kde side at the moment but I haven't used that desktop yet. I'm hoping I can upgrade without re-installing until next April but you never know.

    Next time use this to do the upgrade:

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

    Code:
    sudo apt update && sudo apt dist-upgrade

    The real point is that Ubuntu linux can be upgraded to a new version just by editing (or using sed) a single text file. Compare and contrast to Windows (which I only run these in a VM).
