I'm running Ubuntu 14.04 LTS and I would like to upgrade to Ubuntu 16.04 LTS.

When I launch the Software Updater, I am not prompted to upgrade to Ubuntu 16.04 LTS.

Anyway, settings for the Software Updater are correct.

Thanks for your help.

I just did an upgrade from 14.04 to 16.04 yesterday:

$ sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get upgrade; sudo apt-get dist-upgrade; sudo update-manager -d

That should get you going... :)


The upgrade to 16.04 from 14.04 is not supported ATM.

After the release of 16.04.1, you will be able to upgrade.
