Bug Description

Release upgrade with do-release-upgrade is impossible on IPv6-only hosts, as changelogs.ubuntu.com has no IPv6 address.

# do-release-upgrade
Checking for a new Ubuntu release
No new release found

$ lsb_release -a
No LSB modules are available.
Distributor ID: Ubuntu
Description: Ubuntu 12.04 LTS
Release: 12.04
Codename: precise

$ cat /etc/update-manager/meta-release
# default location for the meta-release file

[METARELEASE]
URI = http://changelogs.ubuntu.com/meta-release
URI_LTS = http://changelogs.ubuntu.com/meta-release-lts
URI_UNSTABLE_POSTFIX = -development
URI_PROPOSED_POSTFIX = -proposed

$ ping6 -c 5 changelogs.ubuntu.com
unknown host

$ host changelogs.ubuntu.com
changelogs.ubuntu.com has address 91.189.95.36

This could probably be worked around by setting a suitable mirror in /etc/update-manager/meta-release, but I think there is a reason why the release upgrader doesn't use the repo mirrors in the first place.

I have no idea who's in authority for this, but it would be best if Canonical would add an IPv6 address to changelogs.ubuntu.com.

I've submitted an RT ticket with Canonical's IS department regarding this, the number is 75640.

Just out of curiosity, is there a way to track that ticket you mentioned at Canonical, or is that tracking system private?
