    Re: Is there a way to install the 20.04 version over the Internet or network?

    I got 16.04 installed and up and running.
    I did a
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    and then a
    Code:
    sudo apt-get upgrade
    this took a while.
    It will not do a
    Code:
    do-release-upgrade
    to 18.04 because it will not upgrade because the following files were kept back:
    The following packages have been kept back:
    apt apt-utils base-files dpkg libapt-pkg5.0 linux-generic
    linux-headers-generic linux-image-generic open-vm-tools python3-apt
    ubuntu-minimal ubuntu-server update-notifier-common
    0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 13 not upgraded.
    I am in the process of installing them one at a time and it seems to be working.
    Got them all install and had to reboot the server to do the
    Code:
    do-release-upgrade
    After reboot, tried the release upgrade but here is what it tells me.

    I am ready to pull my hair out. (what I have left).
    It looks like I have Ubuntu 16.04.7 LTS (GNU/Linux 4.4.0-210-generic i686) installed. Not sure why it is telling me "No new release found?"

    Re: Is there a way to install the 20.04 version over the Internet or network?

    Look at the "EDIT" that was in the bottom of my last post...

    EDIT: Since you now installed fresh from an interim release, when you get back to 16.04 LTS, please edit /etc/update-manager/release-upgrades and set Prompt=lts, so it locks back into the LTS Release schedule, which you have kept to in the past so far.
    If you do not do that... It would still be on the interim release schedule, which would think that 16.10 was the next release, which the End of Life for 16.10 was July 20, 2017... 4 years ago. Getting it back into the LTS schedule, it will see 18.04LTS as the next release.

    Either that, or:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install update-manager-core
    sudo sed -i 's/Prompt=normal/Prompt=lts/g' /etc/update-manager/release-upgrades
    sudo do-release-upgrade
    If that still doesn't work then the fallback Debian branch release upgrade method of:
    Code:
    sudo sed -i 's/xenial/bionic/g' /etc/apt/sources.list
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get upgrade

    It looks like it is already set to this.
    # Default behavior for the release upgrader.

    [DEFAULT]
    # Default prompting behavior, valid options:
    #
    # never - Never check for a new release.
    # normal - Check to see if a new release is available. If more than one new
    # release is found, the release upgrader will attempt to upgrade to
    # the release that immediately succeeds the currently-running
    # release.
    # lts - Check to see if a new LTS release is available. The upgrader
    # will attempt to upgrade to the first LTS release available after
    # the currently-running one. Note that this option should not be
    # used if the currently-running release is not itself an LTS
    # release, since in that case the upgrader won't be able to
    # determine if a newer release is available.

    I ran everything in your post 12 and it is still returning the same, "no new release found." and I am still at 16.04.7 LTS
