    Still trying to upgrade

    Hi Everybody.
    Trying to upgrade to 20.04 from 18.04.
    Now and again my desktop shows a message to tell me that the upgrade is available and asks me whether I want to install it. I click YES....but nothing happens. The message just goes away.
    SO, I do this:- $ sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade -y
    And then I do thisudo do-release-upgrade -d -f DistUpgradeViewGtk3

    From which I get this.Checking for a new Ubuntu release.
    Please install all available updates for your release before upgrading.

    But I've already updated.

    Oh and when I try to update using the graphical user interface doohdad, I get this<img src="https://www.amazon.co.uk/photos/share/DXlK0gQRufLSuYn5kpa6MiG7JXckY42Mjxp2zCMQNTp" border="0" alt=""></div><br><br></div>

    Any advice?

    You could boot to the install media of 20.04 and I believe the update will be offered. Are you getting issues in Bionic?

    Genius.....that worked.

    I ran the instller from USB and it did give me the option to upgrade from 18.04.


    I expect I'll be back in touch around September 2022, assuming we all get there.

    Big thanks,
