Just a note that there is a reason the upgrade path is not enabled yet.
Only upgrade via this method if you are prepared to fix or put up some
broken things (read the release notes for known issues) and only after
taking backups of your system.

If you don't have a specific reason to upgrade, and you have chosen the
LTS upgrade path for stability (like most production machines should),
please refrain from upgrading until 14.04.1, which is when the upgrade
will automatically be proposed to you.
