comment How to change preferred release type for a server to LTS?
good shout that - I checked and it picked 14.04. So it looks like the update manager config is correct. I'm going to accept your answer though since that is the right answer to the question asked. The motd issue is separate by the looks of things.

comment How to change preferred release type for a server to LTS?
Nothing in there. I think perhaps there's a broken motd configuration. Although I don't want to risk running do-release-upgrade and have it upgrade to 12.10 instead of 14.04.

@Lekensteyn compare it under which two circumstances? VPN and no VPN, or VPN and each of the various configurations/checkbox options?

Linking this question and also this for future Googlers. I found those answers to work for one of my machines and the one here to work for another.

comment Make apt-get install an older version
I'm developing on Ubuntu 10.10, but the live server which the development environment needs to mirror to eliminate problems is running on MySQL 5.0.x. I can't change either OS.

comment How to set up Dropbox on Ubuntu Server?
I've already installed it as I said, I'm asking how to set it up. Surely I need to fill in the email and password for the account somewhere?

There's plenty of HDD space available. I'll try removing the gzip line and adding the -z flag though, thanks.
