This question may be more apt to be asked at the forums, but I thought it may not hurt to ask here.
I had installed 11.04 on a friends desktop. This past weekend I tried to do an network upgrade, i.e. update-manager -d and upgrade.
However, if the setting is to upgrade only to LTS release, update manager does not show me an upgrade to 12.04.1. But if I set the setting to any ubuntu version, update manager prompts me to upgrade to 11.10.
Is there some way to force an upgrade to 12.04. From the documentation, it appears no. But I thought I will check with the group.
