** Description changed:

  Hi,
  
  I am on a Kubuntu 11.04 64 bit. My problem is that the upgrade
  notifications for 11.10 are gone. They appeared for a while and suddenly
- vanished. Also, it is not possible to upgrade by means of "sudo do-
- release-upgrade". Therefore, no online upgrade is possible.
+ vanished.
  
  More information:
  * In KPackageKit, in "Settings" -> "Edit Software Sources" -> "Updates" -> "Release Upgrade" -> is set to "Normal Releases";
  * $ sudo do-release-upgrade -c
    Checking for a new ubuntu release
    No new release found
  * $ do-release-upgrade -c
    Checking for a new ubuntu release
    New release 'oneiric' available.
    Run 'do-release-upgrade' to upgrade to it.
  * "$ sudo do-release-upgrade -c -d" or "$ do-release-upgrade -c -d"
    Checking for a new ubuntu release
    New release 'oneiric' available.
    Run 'do-release-upgrade' to upgrade to it.

    Distributor ID: Ubuntu
    Description:    Ubuntu 11.04
    Release:        11.04

  Regarding those flags in "do-release-upgrade":
         -c, --check-dist-upgrade-only
                Check only if a new distribution release is available and report the result via the exit code
         -d, --devel-release
                Check if upgrading to the latest devel release is possible
         -p, --proposed
                Try upgrading to the latest release using the upgrader from Ubuntu-proposed
  
- Can you help me? I have no idea of the reason of this problem.
+ P.S.: I was able to upgrade by the command "do-release-upgrade". Why
+ "do-release-upgrade" works while "sudo do-release-upgrade" does not? It
+ took a while for me to try "do-release-upgrade" and see that the root
+ password would be asked later. Moreover, with the flags "-c -d" or "-c
+ -p", the "sudo" command does not seems to affect the result of "do-
+ release-upgrade".
+ 
+ I know that "sudo do-release-upgrade -c -d" returned "Run 'do-release-
+ upgrade' to upgrade to it." instead of "Run 'sudo do-release-upgrade' to
+ upgrade to it.". However, IMHO, it makes more sense to run it with
+ "sudo". Maybe, this can be considered an usability problem of "do-
+ release-upgrade".
  
  Thanks,
  Alessander
