    Upgrade TO 21.04 FROM 20.10 results in no action

    Hello, I am currently currently using Ubuntu 20.10 release. in the configuration as in the following pictures:
    About.pngUpdates.pngUbuntu Software.pngOther Software.pngAdditional Drivers.png
    When I launch "Software Updater" from "Activities" the system does tell me that there is a new version, 21.04.
    When I click on the "Upgrade..." button, nothing happens.
    In the same way, if a do, as described:
    1.) First of all, make backup of all your important data. (already done usually)
    2.) Then disable or remove Ubuntu PPAs, or third-party repositories. To do so, open Software & Updates utility and go to Other Software tab. (cleaned a lot of stuff)
    3.) Next navigate to Updates tab, make sure the value of “Notify me a new Ubuntu version” is set to “For any new version“. (it was already so)
    4.) If proprietary drivers are in use, it’s recommended to switch to the open-source drivers under Additional Drivers tab. (it was already done)
    5.) Press Ctrl+Alt+T on keyboard to open terminal, and run command to install all system updates:
    Code:
    sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade
    6.) Restart your machine, then open terminal and run command:
    Code:
    update-manager -d
    The Software Updater will pop-up and prompt you that Ubuntu 21.04 is available.
    7.) Click on “Upgrade” button and confirm after reading the release note dialog.
    Then, again, nothing happens.

    Could someone help me?
    Thank you in advance,
    Carlo

    Re: Upgrade to 21.04 from 20.10 results in no action

    Can you clarify please. The title indicates an upgrade from 21.04 t0 20.10 which is not possible anyway and the text of your post states you are running 20.04. There is no direct upgrade path from 20.04 to 21.04 without upgrading 20.10 first.

    Re: Upgrade to 21.04 from 20.10 results in no action

    The command I used to upgrade 20.10 to 21.04 was:

    Code:
    sudo do-release-upgrade -d
    Try that.

    Note: unless I used the -d (development) option, no new version was found. That was on May 1.

    Since I am an idiot, I wrote an idiocy: my upgrade was off course from 20.10 to 21.04. And I'm currently using 20.10. And I'm sorry... I have corrected the post and the related title.

    Firstly, Thank you. The result of the command was:

    If I do not use "-d" i have this result:
    Code:
    sudo do-release-upgradeChecking for a new Ubuntu release
    Please install all available updates for your release before upgrading.
    But it looks I have no updates to install.

    Re: Upgrade TO 21.04 FROM 20.10 results in no action

    This will help you.

    https://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2021/05/...-04-from-20-10


    Notice the switch is -c not -d. The d switch will upgrade to a development version. From 21.04 to 21.10 development version.

    Also keep in mind that the upgrade path from 20.10 to 21.04 has been blocked because of a bug on some machines that stopped the OS from booting. That seems to have been fixed but it may still need a few hours before the upgrade path is available to all.

    Regards
    It is a machine. It is more stupid than we are. It will not stop us from doing stupid things.
