so i type do-release-upgrade -d and I get this:

Checking for a new Ubuntu release
No new release found

and I've tried upgrading the software in every way, it claims my version is up to date. I feel that upgrading is the only solution to stopping these computer crashes.

    Which version of Ubuntu do you have now? – Florian Diesch Oct 17 '15 at 0:06

You can upgrade from Ubuntu 14.10 to 15.04 easily now.

Fist make sure all updates are applied to your current system "sudo apt-get upgrade"

Then make sure the

file /etc/update-manager/release-upgrades

has the line:


Then the following command:

sudo do-release-upgrade
  • says "no new release found"...isn't that bizzar? im trying to figure out which mechanism is malfunctioning...but i guess ill never know – thinksinbinary Oct 17 '15 at 0:29
  • Your prompts were normal? – DnrDevil Oct 17 '15 at 0:30
  • I would check in your settings menu and select any new release then run the software updater. – DnrDevil Oct 17 '15 at 0:31
  • this worked for me when I set Prompt=normal. Thanks – djb Jan 14 '16 at 22:20

Make sure ubuntu is configured to notify you about any new versions available, not just about 'long-term support' versions.

Go to 'Software & Updates' and check if the Updates tab is configured as the image shows:

Software Updates config

With such a config it should detect that 15.04 is already available and should prompt you to install it.
