Ubuntu 8.04 upgrade to 8.10

Hi,

Update manager does not see the next version of Ubuntu in rep. So, does not suggest to upgrade up to that. It can pick up the next version from za.archive.ubuntu.com repository but not from the LEG-one.

Thanks, Alexey

Where are you?

If you are on campus, you’ll need to to pull a few tricks so that update-manager can get the files it needs from changelogs.ubuntu.com. See launchpad bug 228247.

Either:

  • use a correctly setup ntlmaps / cntlm so that update-manager can get this file, or
  • use this hack, or
  • use an “alternate CD” to do the upgrade - it’ll grab everything else from the mirror.

Please let me know if you have any trouble,

SR
