Sorry for being so doff. So I was running 10.04 and upgraded to Maverick (I think it is called) successfully, and then wanted to upgrade to the latest version of Ubuntu - 11.04. I was doing the upgrade through the upgrade manager, and it recognises that there is another upgrade available, but when I hit the upgrade button (I know you’re all cringing now) it tells me it couldn’t download the release notes, and I need to check my internet connection. Argh!
Additional info for you:
Through firefox I can access the internet, and not just local uct pages
My dropbox appears to think it is working but I’ll only tell when I get home
In the command line, when I type in ping www.iol.co.za it just hangs and then times out
Previously I had managed to follow the how to and set up my proxies, I think they’re all messed up now thanks to the upgrade, but am far too stupid to figure out what the problem is.
Any thoughts and advice much much appreciated, and I am willing to buy someone’s time with chocolates wine or flowers or whatever is required!
