I'm trying to upgrade 12.04 to 12.10 using a startup disk, but when I am supposed to choose the type of installation I want, Upgrade option is not available. Can anybody help? I don't want to use Update manager.
I created a USB startup disk from ISO and booted using that to upgrade my 11.10 installation. But when I am not able to select Upgrade from Ubuntu 11.10 to Ubuntu 12.04. The radio button cannot be selected. I am doing a Network upgrade now.
I am on Ubuntu 12.10 and want to upgrade to 14.04. I created a startup disk of 14.04 iso and booted my system using it.
Now i get an option to upgrade 12.10 to 14.04 but it asks me to create a user after selection. I am bit scared as i don't want to create a new user and lose my existing home users.
Please help me to upgrade my Ubuntu without losing existing users home directory.
Somehow the install iso disc won't go into upgrade mode. My f10 is on the hard disk, but needing to be rescued. I would do f11 upgrade; but can't get the disk to do an upgrade. It only wants to install.
Currently using 11.10 on a new dell vostro 2420 laptop and wanted to upgrade to 12.04.01lte.
Using the update manager and clicking the upgrade option first came up with a 'failure to authenticate' message and after a restart of the computer I click the upgrade and it will download 2 files then the popup closes and no further prompts/screens come up.
has there ever been any talk of being able to upgrade via live CD/DVD ??? I am just curious if that would may e be a little less buggy than the update manager.
I'm not knocking the update manager cuz I wouldn't have 11.10 without it as for some reason (and I believe its just a lack of drivers for newer hardware) the 11.10 disk won't even boot on my computer.
