While playing around with my distribution 12.04 LTS, I was checking to see how the upgrade procedure goes and used the command
sudo do-release-upgrade and it said no new release found.
All good, then I typed
sudo do-release-upgrade -d and cool, it worked. But that was just trying things out.
Now each time I am starting my update manager, it shows me a bunch of partial updates and if I click on install them, it goes straight to distribution upgrade. I am more than happy with my LTS and want to fix this upgrade popping up issue each time I am trying to update my system software. Any help in this direction is highly appreciated.
