    Software Updater in 18.04 does not show 20.04

    When I run update-manager from my user account or as root (yes, I gave root a password because I don't like continually running sudo), I do not see the upgrade to 20.04. I would like to move on to the new release because of some changes but can't. When I run "do-release-upgrade" I get the following :

    Checking for a new Ubuntu release
    There is no development version of an LTS available.
    To upgrade to the latest non-LTS develoment release
    set Prompt=normal in /etc/update-manager/release-upgrades.

    Why is it trying to give me a development release? I did the upgrade to 18.04 from either 16.04 or 14.04 through the Software Updater which should have been a stable release and not a development release. Where is this hidden that I supposedly have a development release?

    You won't see the LTS for a week or so. It has to hit the first point release so when 20.04.1 is out you will see the release available

    I am also running 18.04. In the software updater, I have the setting to "Notify me of a new Ubuntu version: For long-term support versions". 20.04.1 came out on 6 August but the option button to upgrade to 20.04 still does not appear when I run software updater. I assume this means that 20.04.1 is still not ready yet. Can someone please confirm this?

    Re: Software Updater in 18.04 does not show 20.04

    I can't confirm it (I freshly installed 20.04 a month ago (and before that ran 19.10)), but this isn't exceptional. For the past 21 months, you've been running 18.04 although a more recent release was available. Another week won't be a problem, right? It's assumed that you, as an LTS user, want stability above all else.

    20.04.1 is ready, you can install it. The upgrade process to 20.04 may not be confirmed to be ready.

    A couple issues are currently blocking opening up the upgrade path,
    See: https://discourse.ubuntu.com/t/focal...tracking/17604

    Also, here's a bug report on the issue:

    Thanks for the replies and the links to the point release tracking. Yeah, I have been on 18.04 for quite a while so no problem for me about waiting.

    Looks like fixes have been released on the listed blocking bugs, So they should flip the switch pretty soon.

    Upgrade getting closer

    I noticed today that the holds on upgrading from 18.10.4 to 20.04.1 changed (one hold was removed) and therefore is getting closer. This page:

    https://discourse.ubuntu.com/t/focal...tracking/17604

    removed one of the 'holds', one other is pending, but if you follow the link for the hold: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...2/+bug/1891680 and scroll to the bottom we find:

    This bug was fixed in the package grub2 - 2.04-1ubuntu29
    ---------------
    grub2 (2.04-1ubuntu29) groovy; urgency=medium
    * grub-install: cherry-pick patch from grub-devel to make grub-install
    fault tolerant. Create backup of files in /boot/grub, and restore them
    on failure to complete grub-install. LP: #1891680
    * postinst.in: do not exit successfully when failing to show critical
    grub-pc/install_devices_failed and grub-pc/install_devices_empty
    prompts in non-interactive mode. This enables surfacing upgrade errors
    to the users and/or automation. LP: #1891680
    * postinst.in: Fixup postinst.in, to attempt grub-install upon explicit
    dpkg-reconfigure grub-pc. LP: #1892526
    -- Dimitri John Ledkov <email address hidden> Tue, 01 Sep 2020 20:04:44 +0100


    Changed in grub2 (Ubuntu Groovy):
    status: Fix Committed → Fix Released

    I may be wrong, and it may be too close to the weekend for an immediate response, but I think the upgrade release is nigh.

    Re: Upgrade getting closer

    Doesn't appear to be a request for support.

    Thread moved to Ubuntu, Linux and OS Chat/


    Thread now merged with a support one - see next two posts.
