I want to upgrade from Ubuntu 11.10 to 12.04. I have selected "For any new version" in "Notify me of a new Ubuntu version".

I executed the following commands successfully:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get dist upgrade


do-release-upgrade did work successfully for the first time and for the subsequent times obviously it said "no new release found", but after this what am I supposed to do?

Now there are no updates to install, but I still don't get the "new Ubuntu release 12.04 is available" message in the Update Manager.

I looked at a lot of other questions, but none of them seem to work for me.

What do you mean do-release-upgrade worked for the first time? Try the command update-manager -d. –  Alaa Ali May 28 '13 at 21:12
