cannot upgrade to 8.04 from 7.1

Bug #225978 reported by Matt Scholz on 2008-05-03
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
update-manager (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

architecture: amd64

I followed instructions as presented on, including installing any new packages and then rechecking for packages via update manager. I do not receive a message that says that 8.04 is available nor do I get an upgrade button.

I tried updating by downloading/burning ubuntu-8.04-desktop-amd64.iso and checking the integrity of the burned disk upon reboot. Integrity is fine, but I still don't get an upgrade dialog. In addition, if I try to run <gksu "sh /cdrom/cdromupgrade"> nothing happens at all.

I'm trying to avoid a fresh install...

OK...I used <gksudo update-manager -d> and that did the trick. I think this still qualifies as a bug, though.

Thank you for reporting this bug and helping make Ubuntu better.

Are you aware there is no provided path for a direct upgrade from 7.04 to 8.04 (you would have to first upgrade to 7.10, apply all updates on 7.10, and then upgrade to 8.04)?

Oops... you were reporting a 7.10 to 8.04 upgrade, not a 7.04 to 8.04, sorry.
