  Unable to upgrade Ubuntu to 16.04 version from 15.10

Status in ubuntu-release-upgrader package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
      Ubuntu 15.10 64 bits.
      Linux castarco-desktop 4.2.0-35-generic #40-Ubuntu SMP Tue Mar 15 22:15:45 UTC 2016 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

  As an extra note, I'm using the privative Nvidia drivers provided by
  Ubuntu (not the ones provided by the NVIDIA webpage).

  The upgrade manager is telling me that it can't upgrade my system to
  Ubuntu 16.04, but it does not tell me what's the concrete problem,
  this is too vague (this is a Spanish message that appears after
  computing the needed changes):

      Eso se ha podido causar por: 
      * Actualizar a una versión de Ubuntu aún no publicada 
      * Estar ejecutando la versión actual, aún no publicada, de Ubuntu 
      * Paquetes no oficiales de software no proporcionados por Ubuntu 
      Si nada de esto aplica, informe de este error usando la orden 
      «ubuntu-bug ubuntu-release-upgrader-core» en una terminal.
