This has probably been asked millions of times already, but I'm struggling to update my Ubuntu system from LTS to LTS, now that the upgrade to 14.04.1 is out. My system keeps notifying me to upgrade to the latest release, claiming that
Your current Hardware Enablement Stack (HWE) is going out of support on 2014-08-07. After this date security updates for critical parts (kernel and graphics stack) of your system will no longer be available.`
However, when I run
sudo do-release-upgrade, Ubuntu says I have no updates available. In addition, changing the
prompt parameter in
prompt=normal instead of
prompt=lts throws the following error:
Checking for a new Ubuntu release 404 Not Found [IP: 188.8.131.52 80] Err Upgrade tool 404 Not Found [IP: 184.108.40.206 80] Fetched 0 B in 0s (0 B/s) WARNING:root:file 'quantal.tar.gz.gpg' missing Failed to fetch Fetching the upgrade failed. There may be a network problem.
This seems weird to me as Quantal isn't even the current release, so I don't know why the system would be looking for it.
People have suggested appending the
-d flag to the
do-release-upgrade command, but the documentation says that this will install the development version of 14.04 which I don't want.
Any help would be appreciated to get me around this roadblock.
