Of course! <hits forehead with baseball bat>
Why didn't I think of this.
OK, alright already, no more "the funny stuff" or attempts at sarcasm or
I did what some guru here suggested a while back which was to select
"Normal Releases" and not the "Long Term Support Releases only" in
OK, I did this, and have had my 10.04 upgraded to 10.04.1 by Update Manager.
Then Update Manager has been telling me over the past days hat there is
a version upgrade (to 10.10).
I mentioned in another post (different thread) of what I was "told" by
the Update Manager when I went to use it to upgrade my 10.04.1 to 10.10.
I read your post (above) and thought, "What WOULD happen if I was a
normal user and simply followed orders like a good soldier"?
So I went into Source Manager and altered the selected "Normal Release"
to "Long Term support release only".
I then ran Update Manager again.
The result is shown on this screen capture:
*NO* mention of any available upgrade to the OS.
Now, how does this gell with the above link you provided which states-
1. Start System/Administration/Update Manager.
Click the *Check* button to check for new updates.
If there are any updates to install, use the *Install Updates*
button to install them, and press *Check* again after that is
4. A message will appear informing you of the availability of the new
6. Follow the on-screen instructions.
Quite apart from this, how would a "newbie" even know that the above
link is available?
Oh, you want to see what Upload Manager shows when I have "Normal
Releases" selected instead of 'Long Term support releases only"?
Just simply asking.
There comes a time in the affairs of a man when he has to take the bull by the tail and face the situation.
