many thanks for your interest in my un-expected upgrade to 13.04. FYI I'm
pasting below the contents of /etc/update-manager/release-**upgrades
# Default behavior for the release upgrader.
# Default prompting behavior, valid options:
# never - Never check for a new release.
# normal - Check to see if a new release is available. If more than one
# release is found, the release upgrader will attempt to upgrade
# the release that immediately succeeds the currently-running
# lts - Check to see if a new LTS release is available. The upgrader
# will attempt to upgrade to the first LTS release available after
# the currently-running one. Note that this option should not be
# used if the currently-running release is not itself an LTS
# release, since in that case the upgrader won't be able to
# determine if a newer release is available.
# default location for the meta-release file
URI = http://changelogs.ubuntu.com/**meta-release<http://changelogs.ubuntu.com/meta-release>
URI_LTS = http://changelogs.ubuntu.com/**meta-release-lts<http://changelogs.ubuntu.com/meta-release-lts>
URI_UNSTABLE_POSTFIX = -development
URI_PROPOSED_POSTFIX = -proposed
For what it is worth I'm running a fresh install of Kubuntu on an Intel
based laptop with EFI. Interestingly I'm also running Kubuntu on a couple
of desktops based on AMD-64 processors and standard BIOS and I have *not*
been offered the upgrade. The 2 files you requested appear identical on the
desktop machines with those on the laptop.
If any other information would help, please just ask.
