I'd love to use the Upgrade Manager but when I run it, it finds over 300
updates and says it can't do a full installation. When I try to run a
partial, it comes back with another error saying it can't authenticate
the packages and that I should try again later. I've tried this a half a
dozen times over the last few days. No luck. I'm having problems with my
system that I'm sure need these updates to fix them, but I can't do the
updates. So I thought installing the lates Ubuntu LTS I might get past
this point and be able to get those updates, or their already in the LTS
