wily release upgrader needs to support upgrades from Trusty

Bug #1537916 reported by Brian Murray on 2016-01-25
This bug affects 1 person
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
ubuntu-release-upgrader (Ubuntu)
Brian Murray

Bug Description

Test Case
1) Modify /etc/update-manager/meta-release URI line to be http://www.murraytwins.com/tmp/meta-release (This is only necessary because Vivid is still a supported release.)
2) Ensure /etc/update-manager/release-upgrades has Prompt=normal
3) Run do-release-upgrade

Observe an error dialog indicating that release upgrades aren't supported with this tool. Using 'do-release-upgrade -p' you should receive no such error message.

DistUpgrade.cfg and demoted.cfg need creating / modifying to support dist upgrades from Trusty to Wily.
