Error while "do-release-upgrade" from ubuntu 20.04 to 22.04

While running do-release-upgrade, I got this error:

Invalid package information 

After updating your package information, the essential package 
'ubuntu-minimal' could not be located. This may be because you have 
no official mirrors listed in your software sources, or because of 
excessive load on the mirror you are using. See /etc/apt/sources.list 
for the current list of configured software sources. 
In the case of an overloaded mirror, you may want to try the upgrade 
again later.

Hi there,

There was a similar question asked here:

https://www.digitalocean.com/community/questions/cannot-update-to-19-04-the-essential-package-ubuntu-minimal-could-not-be-located-2

Based on the solution there, I could suggest trying out with the following command:

RELEASE_UPGRADER_ALLOW_THIRD_PARTY=1 do-release-upgrade

Let me know how it goes!

Best,

Bobby
