How do I upgrade from 10.04 or 11.10 to 12.04?
“No new release found” when upgrading a from 10.04 LTS to 12.04 LTS

I have a beloved high performance 10.04 LTS 64 bit workstation, where I do serious work. I am considering doing a release upgrade to 12.04 LTS early. It seems that 10.04 LTS is not fully supported as I have to manually instal a Nvidia driver, the nvidia-current not supporting my year old video adapter.

It was my understanding that an LTS to LTS upgrade is considered a release up grade, but it is not shown on Update manager as "release upgrade available".

Is a 10.04 LTS to 12.04 release upgrade possible? and can I use the update manager?
