Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

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.
