I found something weird yesterday. I thought it is best to disable all 
startup programs before upgrading. If I do that and then click Upgrade 
in Update Manager, I get the "Welcome to the Xenial Xerus Development 
Release". However, if all the startup applications are running, and I 
initiate upgrade, I get the correct message, "Welcome to Xenial Xerus 
release". I wonder what the mystery is. Perhaps some environment flags 
are getting set by some startup app!

Anyway, I succeeded in upgrading, so the above is for the info of everyone.

/Warm Regards
