I have a 12.04 server (running on amazon aws). I want to upgrade it to 12.10.
The command do-release-upgrade warns me that since I am connecting over ssh (I have no choice in this), a separate sshd daemon will be started on port 1022.
But when I select "y" to continue, I get a fatal error:
Reading cache Checking package manager Continue running under SSH? This session appears to be running under ssh. It is not recommended to perform a upgrade over ssh currently because in case of failure it is harder to recover. If you continue, an additional ssh daemon will be started at port '1022'. Do you want to continue? Continue [yN] A fatal error occurred Please report this as a bug and include the files /var/log/dist-upgrade/main.log and /var/log/dist-upgrade/apt.log in your report. The upgrade has aborted. Your original sources.list was saved in /etc/apt/sources.list.distUpgrade. Traceback (most recent call last): File "/tmp/update-manager-fqw_F5/quantal", line 10, in <module> sys.exit(main()) ...
It says I should report this as a bug. To whom? /var/log/dist-upgrade/main.log is shown below. /var/log/dist-upgrade/apt.log does not exist.
