I'm running lubuntu 10.10, and would like to upgrade to 11.04. I have a very temperamental internet connection, so I would like to download all the packages before running the install.
My question: Is there a way to hack do-release-upgrade to only download the packages, kind of like adding a "-d" to apt-get dist-upgrade?
Or is doing it manually the only way to get the result I desire?
If I have to do it manually, are these the steps needed to do it, or am I missing something?
- Disable 3rd party repositories in
- Change repositories in
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get -d dist-upgradeto only download the packages. Do this as many times as necessary until all the packages are downloaded.
sudo apt-get dist-upgradeto complete the upgrade process
